Squirrel Nut Zippers set to release new album

Finally, a date has been set! Local favorite Squirrel Nut Zippers has announced its release date for its latest album, Lost At Sea, a livecollection of material and its first ever live album.  The album was rumored to come out in late 2008, but was postponed until now, with a release date set for October 27.  From 1994 to 2002 the band released eight albums but have been on in-and-out hiatus since 2002.  In 2007 they performed 50 live shows, but most of the band members are currently working in other bands or performing as solo acts.  The studio album that was supposed to have been released in 2oo9 is back on the drawing boards as band member Chris Phillips says,

“Honestly, the band is getting along better than we ever did in the past and I believe the desire is there to try recording a new album for release in 2010.”

But the best details yet come from where supposedly the entire album will be put up for purchase on the band’s website before it hits the stores anywhere else.  More details to come on that later.
