Bruno Pronsato has a new LP on the way—his first album in over six years.

US Drag the follow-up to 2011’s Lovers Do, lauded by Pitchfork as a “massive and striking statement,” and decorated with a 4.5/5 rating by Resident Advisor.

The new record, which sees the ex-punk rock drummer exploring unorthodox tuning systems and dense, maximal rhythms, was recorded in Berlin during the second half of 2016 and features a collaboration with Liars‘ frontman Angus Andrew.

After the vast, complex arrangements of his previous albums, the nine recordings on US Drag are “more upfront and direct,” says the label, “with a particular focus on bells, tuned percussion and the Sequential Circuits Six-Trak synthesizer (used to create many of the album’s synth parts).”

Pronsato’s ongoing collaboration with Yonatan Levi continues, with the Israeli bassist appearing on two tracks on the album.
