The Twilight Sad will be embarking on a North American tour following the release of their forthcoming full-length, No One Can Ever Know. The album was produced by Andrew Weatherall and will be available February 7, 2012 via Fat Cat Records.
Freshly inspired by a listening diet of Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, and Public Image Limited, the band turn to a dark, synth-heavy sound for No One Can Ever Know; the resulting LP shares thematic and sonic space with the most innovative offerings from Depeche Mode, The Cure, or even Nine Inch Nails.
As made clear already by widely-spread preview track “Kill It In The Morning” (dubbed “slightly evil-sounding” by Pitchfork) and first single “Sick” (which, according to Stereogum “ticks with post-Radiohead guitar and dread”) The Twilight Sad’s third full-length, No One Can Ever Know, marks a sonic shift for the band.
