Peaking Lights sign to Mexican Summer/Weird World, new album expected in Spring 2012

Mexican Summer and Domino’s Weird World label have signed on to release the follow-up to 936 (TMT Review), the fantastic Peaking Lights album released earlier this year on Not Not Fun. The new album isn’t recorded yet, but the husband-wife duo will head to Greenpoint, Brooklyn (where else?) in November to self-produce the album at Mexican Summer’s studio. I could paraphrase right now, but I think Aaron Coyes sums up the new songs best:

The songs that we’ve been working on have been very groovy and psyched out, foraging deeper into new rhythm techniques and territories, smoother bass lines w/ a heavy dub influence looking outward to private press boogie records, African & Latin rhythms and tranced vibrations of the most killer all nite party you’ve never been to: less cocaine, more weed, a sustained orgasm, maintaining 100% creative control, late hot summer nights, come down chill room and low lit zone, lazer light show, smoke machines, being naked and watching the sun rise. This has been inspired by a long wild ride of a year with the birth of our son Mikko Lorenzo Dunis Coyes being at the helm of inspiration. We’re working on moving in new directions, there’s a lot of things we’ll never give up in our passion for making killer chunes, but the birth of our son has been an eye opening event to infinite possibilities…

As we wait for the new album — expected in Spring 2012 — Weird World will release 936 outside North America on November 21, preceded by a 12-inch remix album. And hey, they’ve also got some dates coming up:

12.03.11 - Amsterdam, NL - BitterZoet
12.06.11 - London, UK - Plastic People
12.09.11 - London. UK - Rough Trade East (in-store)
12.10.11 - Manchester, UK - Deaf Institute
