New Cursive out in February

Posted November 16th, 2011 by eric

Cursive will release yet another lyrically thematic album on February 21, 2012 when Saddle Creek issues the band’s seventh full-length, I Am Gemini.

Via the press release:

I Am Gemini is the surreal and powerful musical tale of Cassius and Pollock, twin brothers separated at birth. One good and one evil, their unexpected reunion in a house that is not a home ignites a classic struggle for the soul, played out with a cast of supporting characters that includes a chorus of angels and devils, and twin sisters conjoined at the head.

Sounds heavy. Lyricist Tim Kasher has already exhausted divorce, redemption, suburban ennui, and aging, so why not twins separated at birth? The part of the press release that interests me most, however, is where it states that I Am Gemini is Cursive’s “heaviest in years.”

Track listing for I Am Gemini:

This House Alive
Warmer Warmer
The Sun and Moon
Drunken Birds
Lullaby for No Name
Double Dead
Twin Dragon/Hello Skeleton
This House a Lie
The Cat and Mouse
A Birthday Bash
Eulogy for No Name
