Tonstartssbandht – the brother duo of Edwin and Andy White – have announced a new LP called Petunia. It arrives October 22 via Mexican Summer. Along with the announcement, the group has today shared the lead single ‘What Has Happened’, alongside an accompanying video. Check out the Case Mahan-directed clip below, and scroll down for the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.
“We shot a couple hundred feet of Super 8 in the hot Orlando sun,” Mahan said in a statement. “That nocturnal bird that showed up midday gave us permission to film a heavy subject on a beautiful afternoon. Not premeditated, everything seemed to fall into place much like the band’s performances that are sometimes seemingly improvised.”
Petunia marks Tonstartssbandht’s 18th album, following 2017’s Sorcerer. It was recorded at the brothers’ home studio in Orlando between April and August of 2020 and mixed by Joseph Santarpia and Roberto Pagano at The Idiot Room in San Francisco. “It’s the first time we’ve ever brought someone else into the mixing stage,” Andy White noted in a press release.
