Stephen Malkmus announces new album 'Groove Denied'

Having remained largely part of his formative outfits Pavement and more recently The Jicks in the last few years, frontman Stephen Malkmus has now announced his plans for a new solo record, his first since the 2001 self-titled release.

The new full-length 'Groove Denied' sees him take on an unconventionally electronic direction, is being previewed by the new single 'Viktor Borgia', and is set to arrive on the 15th March via Domino Recordings.

Speaking about his new sound, the frontman said, “I was thinking things like Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’, the Human League, and DIY synth music circa 1982,” says Stephen, adding “and also about how in the New Wave Eighties, these suburban 18-and-over dance clubs were where all the freaks would meet – a sanctuary.”
