Canadian rock band Destroyer have announced details of their new album, Poison Season, due for release on 27 August. Following the release of the album the band will embark on a world tour.

In addition to the album/tour announcement, the band have also placed new song “Dream Lover” online, and it's available to stream at the bottom of the page.

Destroyer have also revealed the release of a two-song 12" as a companion to the new album, including a remix of “Forces From Above” and the orchestral “Times Square, Poison Season” - a song that inspired many tracks on the new album.

Frontman Dan Bejar explained: “The first and last songs are actually one song tracked live with a quintet. That song always swung between super austere and super mid-'70s Springsteen/Bowie street-rock. In the end, I decided I wanted both. Couldn't really figure out a way to sequence the orchestral version within the record, so I decided to carve it up as a book-ending motif, with the rock version squarely in the middle.”

Destroyer tour new album Poison Season through the UK in October/November, at the following venues:


30 – Islington Assembly Hall, London
31 – The Haunt, Brighton


1 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
2 – The Lantern, Bristol
