Seattle's the Briefs have completed recording their fourth full length record, entitled Steal Yer Heart. The album will arrive on October 18th of this year via BYO Records. The follow up to Sex Objects was recorded at Seattle's Avast Studio with longtime producer Johnny "Fingers" Sangster.

Steal Yer Heart marks the debut of the band's new bass player Steve Kicks, formerly of Vancouver punk outfit the New Town Animals. The label reports:

We suggest overwhelming glee and the Briefs would like to assure you that Kicks is "Canadian". As for longtime Briefs bass player, the venerable Lance Romance, rest assured that he is being cryogenically frozen to preserve his stunning good looks and is due for thawing sometime in the year 2092 at which time, the Briefs will be due for their second post break up reunion tour anyways.
