The Lemon Twigs announce new album Go To School

The Lemon Twigs have announced that their new studio album will be released later this year.

Titled Go To School, the album is the follow up to their 2016 debut Do Hollywood, and will launch on August 24 via 4AD Records. 

Like their debut, the album's 15 tracks have been written by the band's sibling duo Brian and Michael D’Addario. Unlike their debut, Go To School is both a concept album and a musical.

"Go To School tells the heartbreaking coming-of-age story of Shane, a pure of heart chimpanzee raised as a human boy as he comes to terms with the obstacles of life," say 4AD on the record. "Todd Rundgren and the D’Addario’s mother Susan Hall play Shane’s parents. The album features contributions from Jody Stephens (Big Star) and their father Ronnie D’Addario."

The band add: "[It's] something now, then, big, small, bleak, and hopeful. All in under an hour."

Listen to new single If You Give Enough below.

The Lemon Twigs will be main support for Arctic Monkeys on their UK and European tour, plus two nights at the Hollywood Bowl. A full list of tour dates can be found below. 

Otherwise, fans have a chance to get into "exclusive" record release shows in London, New York and Los Angeles by pre-ordering the album from the band’s website before July 17.
