Phoenix, AZ's Meat Puppets have announced a new album. Sewn Together will see the light of day May 12th on Megaforce Records. It is the follow up to 2007's Rise To Your Knees, the band's first album after reforming. Says Curt Kirkwood:

In the '80s, we used to just crap this stuff out. Those SST records cost, like, five grand apiece, if that much, and those are the records that made people like us. Now, if I can get away with it, I'll make a record as cheap as I can and put as little work as I can into it, which is what we did with this one. I don't like putting a lot time into it. We cut a track, and if we've played it halfway right, we're done with it.

The band will also be heading out on a tour in support of the album.
