Oshawa's Cuff The Duke have announced that they'll hit the studio to record their third album in October. The record will follow up 2005's Hardwood released Cuff the Duke. In recent months members of the band have joined members of the Weakerthans and FemBots in the instrumental indie rock collective Hylozoists. That act put out the record La Fin du Monde earlier this year.

The band has a number of shows scheduled in October.
