The band will be releasing their new album "Solid States" on the 29th April 2016 in Europe on British indie Lojinx in various formats including heavyweight vinyl LP, CD and digital.

Fans can get an early taste of what is come with a free download of the album track 'Squirrel vs Snake', which can be streamed and downloaded here.

The new album is billed as an evolution for the band sparked by dramatic changes in their lives. We were sent this background: "When the Posies long time drummer, Darius, died suddenly and unexpectedly last year, Posies founding members Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow were devastated. Hard as it was to continue without such a close friend and great musician, the moment called for a reinvention. For now... the idea of the band getting into a room and banging out the music, garage band style, was over. The ideas coming from Jon and Ken were fragile and the moods contemplative. Death, divorce, loss. Even the joys of life are fleeting enough as to be treated with care and respect."
