Motion City Soundtrack have been quiet when it comes to the information concerning their brand new album. After repeatedly being asked about the record by fans for what felt like a year, the group finally revealed that they were in fact working on a new record, though it took months for them to reveal it was due out this Fall.
But, all the secrecy may have just backfired on them. Last night (July 29) Absolute Punk reported that an ad in a magazine may have just revealed a lot of information about the new album.
According to the advertisement, the group’s sixth studio album will be titled Panic Stations and is set to be released on Sept. 28 through Epitaph Records.
In addition the album title and release date, the ad also claims that Motion City will be hitting the road this Fall with The Wonder Years in support of the new record. The joint tour would be fitting since The Wonder Years’ new album, No Closer to Heaven, is set to be released on Sept. 2 and their in-store acoustic tour wraps up on Sept. 10 in Boston.
Check out the advertisement below.
As of now, the band has not confirmed nor denied the ad’s claims. We checked Twitter as we are writing this, and there seems to be nothing but re-tweets from their show last in Toronto.
Panic Stations will be the follow-up to 2012’s Go. Last month, Motion City released “TKO,” the lead single from Panic Stations. In a twist, the audio for the song, very much like the album info, was leaked on Tumblr a day before it was set to make its official debut.
Motion City Soundtrack are currently in the middle of the second leg of their “Commit This to Memory Tenth Anniversary Tour” with The Spill Canvas and Sorority Noise.
