Over the past 20 years, The New Pornographers have proven themselves one of the most accomplished bands in indie rock. They’ve offered new sonic surprises with every album, and their latest album, Continue as a Guest, is their greatest leap to date. The group’s ninth album and first for Merge establishes them alongside modern luminaries like Yo La Tengo and Superchunk when it comes to their ability to evolve, while still retaining what made them so special in the first place. An intriguing collection of songs that are destined to become classics, Continue as a Guest finds bandleader A.C. Newman and his  band mates Neko Case, Kathryn Calder, John Collins, Todd Fancey and Joe Seiders exploring fresh territory and breaking past the boundaries of their collective comfort zone. The critically acclaimed supergroup will be touring in support of the new record while also playing a plethora of favorite tunes from across their expansive catalog.
