So far this year, J Mascis has been primarily working in a guest role, contributing guitars and vocals on songs like Fucked Up’s “Led By Hand” and Strand of Oaks’ “Goshen ’97”. This summer, however, the Dinosaur Jr. bandleader will strike out on his own with a new solo album.
Entitled Tied to a Star, the forthcoming LP marks the follow-up to 2011’s Several Shades of Why and will be released by Sub Pop Records. Mascis announced the album on Monday’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, during which he sat in with Fred Armisen’s 8G Band. Watch video of Mascis’ Late Night appearance below.
In June, Mascis will embark on a brief tour to support the record. His full schedule is below.
