The MOUNTAIN GOATS – ” Bleed Out “

Posted: June 2, 2022 in MUSIC

So, heads up. I got this idea to write a bunch of songs where they were all up tempo mini-action movies. Plots, characters, heists, hostages, questionable capers, getaway cars, all that stuff. Gas pedal glued to the floor. Eventually, as you might guess I wanted at least one song where the tempo relaxed a little and that’s the title track but otherwise buckle up. We hid out in the woods in Chapel Hill and made this album with nobody knowing about it.

Proper secret-soldier style. It has been pretty hard keeping this under our hats, we are really proud of what we got here. Alicia Bognanno (of Bully) produced & played with us, and the great Shani Gandhi mixed.

The album is called ‘Bleed Out’ and will be out on August 19th via Merge Records. The first single is “Training Montage” which does what it says on the tin, and you can pre-order the album now…
