Fall 2007 sees the members of San Diego-based indie-rock outfit Pinback prepping a new album for Touch and Go. The appropriately named Autumn of the Seraphs is another collection of tightly arranged, straightforward tracks dominated by guitar chords and Zach Smith’s pleasant vocal range, but what makes this album noteworthy is the bonus EP that comes packaged with all pre-ordered copies. Supposedly a means of combating internet leaks likely to occur before the album’s release date, the EP features three additional tracks, two of which are from the Autumn sessions. Yes, vinyl snobs who pre-order will have the opportunity to get these tracks, via a coupon to download the EP.

Meanwhile, check out the guys on a jam-packed US tour this fall, starting just days after the new album drops.
