Summer Cannibals Line Up Summer Release For New Album 'Can't Tell Me No'

Summer Cannibals have announced the release of their fourth studio album.

Led by the energetic lead single, False Anthem, the Portland band will put out 'Can't Tell Me No' on June 28 via Tiny Engines marking their first entirely self-engineered and produced album. It was recorded quickly after vocalist Jessica Boudreaux escaped a manipulative personal and creative relationship and decided to scrap an entire record that had been finished for over a year and start again. She explained:

"We had to sacrifice an album we'd worked hard on so that someone abusive and manipulative couldn’t benefit from it. It was, in a matter of 24 hours, making the decision to start something new or let them win.

"Writing this record and making it ourselves was about liberation from the parts of an industry that have protected abusers for way too long, and about saying fuck you to the people who have invalidated my and so many others’ experiences of abuse.

"It's really easy for people to condemn the government and figures we see on the news, but those same people often fail when it comes to standing up to and calling out the people in their lives who are just as evil."

Head below to check out the album's cover art, tracklist, as well as the new song, which delivers three minutes of raw, jagged guitar rock intertwined with a blistering lyrical takedown of someone who is hypocritical and unwilling to take action.

Photo: Randall Slavin Calling Rob Thomas the modern day embodiment of the American dream is, admittedly, overly saccharine, a little old fashioned and not necessarily congruent with the undercurrent of emotional angst that’s always fuelled much of his music. Yet he’s certainly travelled a great distance to where he finds himself today, having risen from an extremely dysfunctional background to earn a reputation as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.
