Xiu Xiu


Gloom-noise act Xiu Xiu has announced the release of its upcoming full-length, Angel Guts: Red Classroom, out February 4 via Polyvinyl. The LP will be the band’s first record of original material since 2012′s Always, and will follow up their Nina Simone tribute album, Nina, out December 2 on Graveface.
 
That jolly news came hand in hand with their not-so-jolly new single Stupid In The Dark, which clearly shows Xiu Xiu’s attempt to fully immerse their sound in darkness. The track is unsettling, cloudy and ominous, leaving you to ponder all sorts of evils. It makes sense considering the record’s name is taken from a Japanese erotic noir film. Stream it and check out the album’s tracklist, below.
