» » » P.O.S Announces New Album "Chill, Dummy" + 1st Single


P.O.S is excited to announce his brand new record, Chill, dummy, set to be released on 1/27/17 through Doomtree Records.  The 12-track album is a collection of 10 new tracks and two previously released singles (“Wearing A Bear” and “sleepdrone/superposition”).  Upon pre-ordering, fans will immediately receive the two singles along with brand-new song “Lanes” which we supply here.  The Doomtree Webstore physical pre-order contains standard CD / LP and deluxe CD / LP options and exclusive merch, including reflective t-shirts, 3D lenticular prints, stress balls, and sleep masks -- taking the whole Chill, dummy concept to unseen chillout heights.

P.O.S steps even further into genre-blurring territory with Chill, dummy, his first official release with Doomtree Records since the release of his debut album  Ipecac Neat. The album reflects on the past three years since a near-fatal kidney transplant sidelined him from making music and deals with the the difficulties of trying to maintain peace of mind and navigate through a confusing world, which is becoming increasingly more alienating. P.O.S' production fingerprints are all over this one as he maneuvers through a wide range of sprawling beats contributed by himself, usual suspects Lazerbeak and Ryan Olson, and newcomers Cory Grindberg and Makr. Several friends touch down along the way to offer up biting commentary and varying points of view (Allan Kingdom, Astronautalis, Kathleen Hanna, Justin Vernon, Open Mike Eagle, Busdriver, and Lady Midnight, to name a few), but the album never suffers from an oversaturation of scattered voices, instead using everyone's individual ethos and strengths to build a unifying call to arms. The result is P.O.S' most bold, honest, and daring work to date, so Chill, dummy.
 
He is looking forward to hitting the road early next year in support of Chill, dummy, playing hits new and old.  The first leg will see Ceschi and Transit22 opening up.
