TV Ghost released a new album called Mass Dream, but you'll pretend you already knew that, won't you?

TV Ghost (the rotting cyber post-punk band from Lafayette, Indiana, not the spirit of Bob Hope) just released a new record on In the Red called Mass Dream. It’s the follow-up to their last record, 2009’s Cold Fish, which was also released by In the Red. But you already knew that, didn’t you? You tweet, you read the blogs, you don’t need me telling you this shit. You’re in the scene, right? You saw TV Ghost open up for Lightning Bolt in Brooklyn last year and you talked to the bassist after the show and he told you all about this record, when it would be released and by whom. You guys also discussed a shared interest in the philosophy of Sartre and the pros and cons of cut-off jean shorts.

Well guess what, kid, here’s a little somethin’ ya didn’t know but can pretend that you did. Them Indiana boys are heading out on a tour of the pure, just, and bountiful United States of America come the end of May. Speaking of places of bounty, the band kick things off in Detroit, Michigan and then slowly work their way South, taking in all that the glorious Midwest has to offer, from the gracious scenic plains to the out-in-the-open gay bashing. Ah, what more could you ask for?
