Bill Callahan Announces ‘Apocalypse’ LP

Thrilled to hear the announcement today that Bill Callahan’s follow-up to Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle (one of my favorite albums of 2009 and one of Lee Ranaldo’s top 3 LPs of the decade) will arrive on April 19 via his longtime label Drag City. Unfortunately, other details are scarce at this time, aside from the Old West-inspired flier above, which reveals Callahan’s intriguingly bold album title: Apocalypse.

In other Callahan news, he recently shared a bill with Jeff Tweedy, Danielson Famile, Steve Albini, and others for a benefit concert at Chicago’s Second City. While we wait for the first signs of the Apocalypse, enjoy a video of Callahan performing his 2005 Smog tune “The Well,” live at that show, below.
