DIY indie rockers, Car Seat Headrest have announced a new album, Making A Door Less Open, set for release May 1 on Matador Records. The first album for Will Toledo and the band since 2016’s Teens Of Denial, the group also shared the song “Can’t Cool Me Down” from the forthcoming album.

With Making A Door Less Open, Toledo embarks on a new and imaginative style of songwriting and recording. The new album is a “collaboration” created over the last four years with Toledo’s electronic sound project, 1 Trait Danger. The band recorded the album twice: once live with guitars, drums and bass, and once in a MIDI environment using purely synthesized sounds. During the mixing process, the two approaches were gradually combined using elements of each, with additional overdubs.

Car Seat Headrest will also embark on a North American tour this summer, including stops in Raleigh, NC (June 16 at The Ritz), Asheville, NC (June 17 at Orange Peel) and Columbia, SC (June 18 at The Senate). The band last toured in 2018 and played to a sold-out crowd at Carrboro’s Cat’s Cradle.

Check out the tracklist for the new Car Seat Headrest album Making A Door Less Open out May 1 on Matador Records.
