Jagjaguwar has just announced that Seattle’s Cave Singers will
have their next album on the label. The quirky NW  folksters (guitarist Derek Fudesco, singer
Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund) plan to enter the studio this summer with
Seattle producer Randall Dunn, the man behind the boards with bands like Sunn
O))), Boris and The Cave Singers’ friends Black Mountain. “In working with
Dunn,” the label tells us,  “the band
hopes to give its sound some added weight and a soaring ferocity more akin to
The Cave Singers’ incredible live show. The recording session will manifest
itself as The Cave Singers’ Jagjaguwar debut early next year.”

“Everything’s more electrified on this record, and just louder,”
Fudesco recently told Seattle Weekly.
“We wanted to work with someone who we felt could have a bit thicker
production, and working with someone who does a lot of heavier records, [we
thought] even our quieter songs would probably come off more like we play ’em
live.”

The band will unveil some of the new songs in August at Happy
Valley, Oregon’s Pickathon and
then at the No Depression Festival in Redmond,
WA. Between the two festivals The
Cave Singers will share the stage with Dr. Dog, Bonnie Prince Billy, Lucinda
Williams, The Swell Season, Alejandro Escovedo and many more. And in September,
the band will go abroad to tour China
for the first time.
