Back in February, José González informed the masses (via his site) that he has regrouped with his pre-solo career band, Gothenburg, Sweden’s Junip, for a forthcoming full-length album. González also revealed that The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of José González, a documentary about his life, songwriting, and recent tours, is making the festival circuit (watch the trailer). Well, Junip have not only recorded an LP, but they have an EP in the can, as well.
Junip will follow up their debut EP, Black Refuge, at an as-yet-undisclosed date this year with an LP and EP via Mute Records in North America. “We are really happy to have had the time to write and record these songs and now are excited to have the opportunity to play them live,” said González of their upcoming summer tour, which kicks off at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival before stopping in 8 major U.S. cities.
Junip’s full tour schedule and a free MP3 of their new song “Rope and Summitt” are waiting for you at Junip.net right now.
