Long-running Canadian rockers Sloan have revealed plans for their next studio album. The band’s aptly titled 12th album, 12, will arrive on April 6 via Murderecords/Universal Music Canada.

Still featuring all four founding members, the band continue their democratic music style on the new record, delivering three songs penned by each Patrick Pentland, Chris Murphy, Jay Ferguson and Andrew Scott — bringing together their penchants for “soaring rock anthems,” “playful, participatory singalongs,” “jaunty prop-pop gems” and “whimsical innerspace explorations,” respectively.

The album marks the follow-up to 2014’s Commonwealth, and it hears the band working more closely together than the last time around.

“That album was more of everyone retreating to corners to produce and sequence a side of their own material,” Ferguson said in a statement, comparing the two records. “This one would potentially have more collaboration than usual.”

As a precursor to the album, Sloan have shared lead single “The Day Will Be Mine.”

Below, you’ll also find the band’s upcoming tour dates in support of the new material. 12 is available for pre-order on CD and orange vinyl via MusicVaultz.
