The darkly textured collection of new songs will be unveiled during a two-week string of very exclusive club dates across the country beginning July 26th , it was announced today. The new album will arrive in stores on September 16th, the follow-up to the platinum Mer De Noms, APCs extraordinary Virgin Records debut of May 2000.
