Vivian Girls move to Polyvinyl, announce new album for the spring

Last year, Vivian Girls won over the latest incarnation of the fuzz-pop girl band circuit with their sophomore album, Everything Goes Wrong (TMT Review), a fast-paced, jangly study of just how crappy things can get. Things have turned around now, if the cheerfully saccharine title of the forthcoming album is any indication. The Girls’ third full-length, Share the Joy, is slated for release sometime in the spring of next year, with another significant step up: a switch to Polyvinyl.

Thankfully, the split with In the Red doesn’t seem to be as bad as the breakups in their songs. Guitarist Cassie Ramone has a solo album, Zenith, lined up for release on In the Red, so they’re on speaking terms, if not already comfortable hanging out.
