Do Make Say Think love verbs. Without verbs, they wouldn’t have a name. Instead of being Do Make Say Think, they’d be something like The Palettes. Or, since they’re a post-rock band, they’d probably be Eons Within The Night or Manatee or something along those lines. Jeez, now I love verbs more than I ever knew.

As it turns out, without verbs, Do Make Say Think’s new record, Other Truths, wouldn’t have any song titles either. You see, this new album, out October 20 on Constellation, has four tracks, named “Do,” “Make,” “Say,” and “Think.” Without these precious, precious verbs, Other Truths would resemble a circa-2002 Sigur Rós record. Personally, I’d rather this record not resemble a circa-2002 Sigur Rós record.

That said, Other Truths will surely resemble a Sigur Rós record in one way: vocals! The generally instrumental crew will let some vibrations of human vocal chords share space with their massive guitar chords vibrations. While this won’t be the first time vocals have made their way into the band’s post-rock epics, this time it is courtesy of some special guests in the form of Akron/Family and Lullabye Arkestra.

Do Make Say Think will fill the dates following Other Truths' release by conducting a lengthy European tour, followed by a shorter string of North American dates. No word on whether members of Akron/Family or Lullabye Arkestra will take part in any of the live dates.

Other Truths tracklist:

1. Do
2. Make
3. Say
4. Think
