Kasher, Matt Maginn and Ted Stevens are picking up Patrick Newbery from Conduits as well as Cully Symington from Okkervil River on drums (even though Clint Schnase is performing on drums with the band at Maha on Aug. 13).
Anyway, they're working with producer Matt Bayles over at ARC Studios right now. Bayles has produced albums by Mastodon and Minus The Bear (he was also a former member) and he was also an engineer on albums by Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. Bayles should be a pretty good guy to have behind the board.
The album is a follow-up to 2009's "Mama, I'm Swollen," which was critically acclaimed and saw the band take on an aggressive tour schedule opening for some decently big names.
No release date yet, but my guess is that the album will be released in early 2012 since Kasher's going on tour in August and September behind a new EP, "Bigamy: More Songs From The Monogamy Sessions."
As mentioned previously, Cursive will perform in Omaha on Aug. 13 at Maha Music Festival. Kasher will perform a solo show on Sept. 10 at The Waiting Room Lounge.
