Guided by Voices Announces New Album “Surrender Your Poppy Field”, Releases New Song “Volcano”
- American alt-rock band Guided by Voices announced that their 30th album “Surrender Your Poppy Field” will be released on February 20th.
The album follows up their 2019 releases “Zeppelin Over China”, “Warp and Woof”, and “Sweating the Plague”.
From the album, the band released a new song “Volcano” on January 7th.
The album title is inspired from 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz”. “I think Wizard of Oz came to mind when it was first conceived,” says frontman Robert Pollard. “I did a five-song EP about four or five years ago under the name Sunflower Logic and we included a mock catalog for the label name we used, Pink Banana Records. In it there are 50 or 60 fake band names with titles for 45s, EPs albums and compilations and one of the songs was ‘Surrender Your Poppy Field.’ It stuck and I decided to give it a real home on a Guided by Voices album.”
The band will embark on a headline tour in support of the album, with beginning at Ottobar in Baltimore on April 3rd.
