Brooklyn rock band Robbers On High Street has just announced that its upcoming third album, Hey There Golden Hair, will be released September 13. The album, produced by frontman Ben Trokan with engineer Matt Shane, marks the first time that the band recorded with its current lineup. With the exception of Daptone’s horn section, the band had little outside help.


Hey There Golden Hair will be released in association with fundraising site PledgeMusic, and anyone who pre-orders the album or makes a “pledge” will receive a free digital EP with various exclusive prizes, depending on the size of the pledge. These rewards include autographed limited vinyl, the chance to drive around Brooklyn with the band in its van, the Gentleman’s Cruiser, and the recording of a cover song of your choice. You can download an exclusive live version of “Watch Me Disappear,” a new track off of the upcoming album, here.


Although the album is not coming out until the fall, Robbers On High Street will be keeping busy all summer. The band has a residency at Brooklyn Bowl on Monday nights in August and will follow that up with the Truck Festival, a West Coast tour in September and then a visit to Pensacola, FL, in October.
