FatCat’s deliciously mournful balladeers The Twilight Sad take their melancholy, atmospheric pop to the U.S. this spring, alongside Mary Timony and Aereogramme.

The Glasgow-based band will release its debut full-length, Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters, this April, an album that’s already received praise on XLR8R‘s Top Ten Album Picks when we hailed it as a soundtrack of melodic pop songs appropriate to have on rotation when breaking up with one’s significant other. Calling up comparisons to Mice Parade or Sigur Rós, the music contains exactly the kind of heart-wrenching vocals and pensive chord progressions that get indie kids running to the concert venues in droves. If you’re headed for Breakupville, or simply want to be depressed in the best possible way, check the band when they arrive in North America.

Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters is out April 24, 2007 on FatCat
