The Breeders have announced that they’ll release a new album in the coming months.

All Nerve will launch on March 2 via 4AD and will be the lineup of Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson’s first full-length since 1993’s Last Splash and the band’s first since 2008 record Mountain Battles.

The album will feature the single Wait In The Car which was unveiled in October last year - and The Breeders have also made the title track available to stream. Listen to it below.

In addition, they’ve lined up a run of shows across North America, the UK and Europe which will take place throughout April, May, June and July.

All Nerve will be released on CD, standard black vinyl and on digital formats, with a limited edition orange vinyl featuring an alternative sleeve available exclusively through independent record stores.

Those ordering through 4AD’s online store can bundle their album with the third in the Wait In The Car 7-inch single series. The limited red vinyl also features a cover of Mike Nesmith’s Joanne.
