Cursive Shares Single "Stranded Satellites," Announce Surprise Album

On the heels of dropping a new single each week since September 13th, the Omaha, NE band today announced that their second new album in as many years, Get Fixed (15 Passenger Records). dropping next Friday, October 11th. Cursive has also shared a fourth and final single from the LP, the bristling “Stranded Satellite.”

Get Fixed ripples with the visceral intensity and keen, unexpected melodicism for which Cursive has long been celebrated, as illustrated in searing first single “Barricades,” the alternately pummeling and anthemic “Black Hole Town,” and the more atmospheric, moody “Marigolds.” While the album was largely born out of the same sessions as Vitriola with founding drummer Clint Schnase, “Stranded Satellite” and “Black Hole Town” were recorded this year and feature touring drummer Pat Oakes. “We’re quite proud of the work we’ve done on both Vitriola and Get Fixed,” explains singer/guitarist Tim Kasher in a letter describing the genesis of the new album. “In certain ways, they may forever be considered companion pieces, but Get Fixed feels as though it’s been emancipated from the  Vitriola session: the extra care and attention it received has helped it develop an identity very much its own. These songs of anger, frustration, helplessness, and loss feel more poignant to us now than even a year ago — we’re thrilled to finally introduce them to our world.” More information on Get Fixed—which was produced by Mike Mogis and Cursive—can be read in the entire letter from Kasher HERE, alongside Cursive photos and album art.
