Mini Mansions have announced their third album, 'Guy Walks Into A Bar…'.

Led by first single GummyBear, the follow up to last September's 'Works Every Time' EP and 2015's 'The Great Pretenders' LP will arrive on July 26 through Fiction Records. 

Head below to view the album's cover art and tracklist, which also features a guest spot from the Kills' Alison Mosshart on Hey Lover. Speaking about the new single, vocalist Michael Shuman said:

"Although GummyBear is rather fun and comical, the sentiment and story behind it are quite the opposite. At that time I really wanted to make an all disco record, but I guess this is as close as Mini Mansions gets to being part of the Gibbs family."

The band will support the release with a UK and Ireland tour in May, joined by Shuman's Queens of the Stone Age bandmate Jon Theodore, who also played drums on the record. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on February 21.

The band also continue to rack up the miles supporting Arctic Monkeys in Australia and New Zealand beginning later this month.

'Guy Walks Into A Bar…' tracklist:

1. Should Be Dancing
2. Bad Things (That Make You Feel Good)
3. Don’t Even Know You
4. Forgot Your Name
5. I'm In Love
6. Time Machine
7. Works Every Time
8. Living In The Future
9. GummyBear
10. Hey Lover (feat. Alison Mosshart)
11. Tears In Her Eyes

Tue 22 Jan 2019
When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.
Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow (Album Review)
Wed 23 Jan 2019
Photo: Ryan Pfluger We’ve all got them: those little chores we should be getting on with. Posting that letter. Watering our houseplants. Shaving our legs. Sharon Van Etten’s got them, too, but she favours a different approach to these small administrative tasks. ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, her fifth album, is about being more present and not giving a shit about the small stuff.
