After the Jump Presents Free Longwave Show on Friday

Longwave Plays Free Show at Music Hall of WilliamsburgLongwave is playing the official after-party for the Regina Spektor/Albert Hammond, Jr McCarren Pool concert. This is a free show and Alberta Cross is opening. The show is at the Music Hall of Williamsburg and doors open at 9:30PM.

Longwave also announced a release date of November 11th for their follow-up to 2005's There's A Fire. The upcoming disc is entitled Secrets Are Sinister and it will be released on Original Signal Recordings. For anyone who wants an advance listen, there are a number of tracks from Secrets Are Sinister streaming on Longwave's MySpace profile.

"[T]he new album was recorded predominantly by the band in their Brooklyn studio and with the help of producer Peter Katis (The National, Tokyo Police Club, Interpol) at his Connecticut studio. Secrets Are Sinister expands on the band’s trademark sound: atmospheric, arena-sized guitars still build to an epic swell while the band’s penchant for dreamy landscapes now gives way to an equally dynamic but louder, noisier, and more driving sensibility. Hailed in the past by magazines ranging from Rolling Stone to Nylon to Alternative Press, Longwave returns with their most varied and accomplished work to date, from the shimmering “Sirens In The Deep Sea” to the thundering, Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Sleater-Kinney)-produced “Life Is Wrong” to the hopeful title track."
