The new album, Kill My Blues, will be out on September 18th on Kill Rock Stars. Pitchfork has a stream of it for those who need to listen now.
As for Corin Tucker Band, even though this was their first night to support their latest album, Kill My Blues, you can tell that the band were pros. They were dying to play the new songs, and sure enough, as you can see from the set list, the majority of the set were from Kill My Blues. The remainder of the set was from their previous album, 1,000 Years, including "Half A World Away," "Handed Love," "Riley," and the set rocking closer, "Doubt." Of the new songs played live I really liked "Kill My Blues" and "Neskowin."
Encore was interesting. Two cover songs: Blondie's "Atomic" (this song was made more rock and emphasized on the guitars) and Gnomes of Zürich. I didn't know the latter song, but I think the reason for the Zürich cover is that this was an old 90s Minneapolis band, and it was just Corin Tucker Band paying tribute to the city*.
The Corin Tucker Band is currently on tour to promote Kill My Blues. The record comes out September 18th on Kill Rock Stars.
* Most bands usually cover Prince or The Replacements.
