Ah, Wolves in the Throne Room. How I love thee, despite your air of hipsterdom and pretentiousness. The band recently sent out details about their upcoming album Celestial Lineage, for those that care. The album art (above) looks pretty neat, and I’m eternally grateful that it isn’t entirely washed out like their other covers. It looks as if they took the picture with Instagram instead of their usual disposable camera from the 80s. Now we’re getting somewhere!

Snarkiness aside, I really am looking forward to hearing this record. It’s a whopping seven songs, leading me to believe they’ve opted for shorter tracks or the album runs on for well over an hour. Here’s the tracklist:

1. Thuja Magus Imperium
2. Permanent Changes in Consciousness
3. Subterranean Initiation
4. Rainbow Illness
5. Woodland Cathedral
6. Astral Blood
7. Prayer of Transformation

Sounds good! The band are also going on a headlining tour, starting at the end of August and going through September. You can see the dates after the jump. Celestial Lineage is due out September 13th on Southern Lord records.
