Upon the album's release I seemed to encounter the band's piano and percussion attack at every turn, from the close confines of The Summit to the wide open spaces of Bonnaroo. They disappeared for a spell, but now the perennial opening act (they've supported Muse, Interpol, Spoon and The Walkmen, among others) is back to headline the Newport.

Their website promises "new jams," so get geeked.
