The Voidz (formerly Julian Casablancas+The Voidz) will release VIRTUE, their first new album in nearly four years, on Cult Records/RCA Records. The VHS-tastic video for album track “QYURRYUS” marks Voidz frontman Julian Casablancas’ directorial debut, and follows “Leave It In My Dreams,” another song from VIRTUE, hailed by Rolling Stone as “infectious....balance[s] pop with deft forays into the surreal.”
The fifteen tracks on VIRTUE herald the return of a reinvigorated Voidz, and contain group’s most indelible work to date. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Grammy-winner Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs), the album shapeshifts into bold and exciting new forms from one song to the next.
“Our goal was to make a record that a wider audience would enjoy as much as we enjoyed the first album, Tyranny," says Casablancas. “Still a swirl of different styles, but I think this might the most eclectic record I’ve ever been a part of. There’s a song on there for everyone.”
