Pia Fraus is ready to present you their new album "After Summer". It is released on May 13 on CD and vinyl LP in Europe by Seksound and in USA on CD by Clairecords. CD album with exclusive bonus tracks is released week before, May 7, in Japan by Vinyl Junkie Recordings. "After Summer" is produced by legendary Glaswegian Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub, BMX Bandits, The Pastels etc). Pia Fraus and Norman Blake kept file transfer programs busy for months to exchange soundfiles; this relationship has created something magical. "After Summer" is the 4th proper album from the Pias, and quite possibly their best album to date. No wonder, if your idol takes producer's chair! The album also features some guest musicians: Estonian electronica stars Galaktlan and Pastacas guest on two of the album's tracks. Moreover, "After Summer" has the well-known and well-loved Pia Fraus sound, quality songwriting, a lot of studio tricks and layers of guitars, synths, and boy/girl vocals. This album will bring huge grins to the mouths of Pia Fraus fans, yet at the same time it is a perfect introduction to Pia Fraus for the uninitiated. For fans of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Teenage Fanclub, The Pastels, The Beatles, and Pia Fraus!
