The Dodos Announce Fourth Album

The two-piece group The Dodos have been diligently working on their fourth full-length album, and are now ready to share some info about it.

Called No Color, the album’s main goal was to “bottle the frenzied folk approach” that the band has featured prominently on past recordings.  “I have a love for ‘90s riffs that I haven’t gotten to showcase in this band,” explains guitarist/singer Merc Long. “The most fun I had with this record was when I got to strap on the electric guitar and come up with Billy Corgan riffs while the tape was rolling.”

People can start looking for The Dodos’ No Color on Frenchkiss Records on March 15th, and news of an upcoming spring U.S. Tour will be coming soon.
