Cursive Announce New Album, Listen To Lead Single “Life Savings”

Big Scary Monsters Records have announced that they will release the new album from Omaha, Nebraska cult rock band Cursive later this year. The record will be the band’s first new material in six years. The new album is titled Vitriola and will be released on 5th October 2018 by Big Scary Monsters (UK) and the band’s own 15 Passenger Records (US).

Listen below to Cursive’s lead single “Life Savings“.

Commenting on the track, front man Tim Kasher said: “This song reminds me of machinery, maybe a train that keeps chugging forward, or perhaps a printing press printing ‘money’. It also feels as though it’s burdened with a heavy weight and, for many of us, the weight of worrying about money can be all consuming.”

For the first time since Happy Hollow, the album reunites Kasher, guitarist/singer Ted Stevens and bassist Matt Maginn with founding drummer Clint Schnase, as well as co-producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, M. Ward, Jenny Lewis) at ARC Studios in Omaha. They’re joined by Patrick Newbery on keys (who’s been a full-time member for years) and touring mainstay Megan Siebe on cello.
