Birds of Avalon, Raleigh’s tried and true rockers are working on some new things.  Aside from playing a house show in early February, there hasn’t been much public activity.  All that’s about to change.  There’s the experimental new LP, Uncanny Valley and some tour dates to boot.  The album is leaps and bounds from their first effort.  Its been two years since Bazaar Bazaar, but the wait will be worth it come June.  For more information, please visit BOA’s websiteStereogum has a preview already up.  Read on for the press release.

    Looking forward to the new record..  No mention of the 6 song EP, outer upper inner, which came out last year.  An excellent record.
