Palehound have announced details of their newest album, ‘Eye on the Bat’. The LP will be released via Polyvinyl Record Co. on 14th July. The band have released ‘The Clutch’ from their forthcoming EP, along with a video which you can watch below. Says frontperson El Kempner: “‘The Clutch’ is the very first song I wrote for this album, back in 2020 right when lockdown started. I had been on a tour that was sliced in half by the onset of the pandemic and we had to apocalypse road trip back to New York across the country from Oregon, where our next show had been scheduled for.” “While that was happening, I was also having a triggering romantic experience with somebody I didn’t know too well, and by the time I got home my whole body seemed to be spinning in turmoil. Writing and producing this song grounded me and helped me process a new future and self that I hadn’t anticipated.” That same transformative energy spurred much of ‘Eye on the Bat’s’ lyrics and themes: “It’s about me, but it’s also about me in relation to others,” they say. “After hiding for so long – staying inside and hiding your life and hiding yourself from the world – I was ready. I think I flipped.” ‘Eye on the Bat’ will be Palehound’s first solo material since their 2021 collaboration with Jay Som under the name Bachelor. The full tracklist for ‘Eye on the Bat’ can be found below: 1. Good Sex 2. Independence Day 3. The Clutch 4. Eye On The Bat 5. U Want It U Got It 6. Route 22 7. My Evil 8. Head Like Soup 9.
