John Maus is Going on Tour, Releasing a New Album and a Career Spanning Box Set. Oh Yeah!

John Maus is incredible, everything he does is incredible so we’re sure that his first album in six years – Screen Memories, due out October 27, 2017 – is also going to be bloody incredible.

Maus has shared the album’s first cut and opening track ‘The Combine’ and you can catch the video for it below. The new album was record by Maus at his Minnesota home studio Funny Farm and follows We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves. As well as the new album there’s also a career spanning six LP box set on the way in April 2018, featuring 6-page booklet with essays, lyrics and never-before-seen photos, plus additional new album Addendum that’s exclusive to the limited edish box-set.

Here is a picture of the box set, incase you didn’t believe us and needed to see it with you own eyes:

Its literally raining John Maus all over us and we could not be more excited that our favourite academic (he has a doctorate in Political Philosophy) is back in the music making game. Here’s ‘The Combine’:
