The Breeders - New Album, 'All Nerve'
The Breeders : New Album, 'All Nerve'
9th January 2018

Today, the Breeders announce details of their long-awaited fifth album.  

Entitled All Nerve, and featuring recent single ‘Wait in the Car’, the group’s first record in a decade will be released on 2nd March 2018.  All Nerve’s title track is now available to hear below.


All Nerve reunites band members Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson – the classic line-up behind the Breeders’ iconic and platinum-selling record, Last Splash.  The quartet returned to the stage in 2013 to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary and have been quietly working on new material since then. Recording took place at Candyland, Dayton, Kentucky with Mike Montgomery; Electrical Audio, Chicago, with Steve Albini and Greg Norman; and with Tom Rastikis at Fernwood Studios, Dayton, Ohio.  Artwork was conceived by Chris Bigg, who has worked with the Breeders since their first album Pod.

All Nerve is available to pre-order from 4AD here.
You can pre-order the album from The Breeders' Store here.
You can pre-order All Nerve on all platforms here, including Spotify pre-save, here.

All Nerve will be released on 2nd March on CD, standard black vinyl, limited orange vinyl (with alternative cover - indie stores only) and digitally.  4AD Store customers also have the opportunity to bundle their LP album pre-order with the third iteration in the ‘Wait in the Car’ 7” single series, while stocks last.  This limited red vinyl single features a cover of Mike Nesmith’s ‘Joanne’.  For more information head to 4ad.com/store
