Car Seat Headrest announces ‘Teens of Denial’ & shares ‘Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales’

Car Seat Headrest is excited to announce the release of Teens of Denial out Friday 20 May via Matador Records / Remote Control Records.

Teens of Denial is the thirteenth album in Car Seat Headrest’s (aka 23-year-old Will Toledo) oeuvre, second on Matador, and first to be recorded in a proper studio with a full band and producer (Steve Fisk).

On DenialToledo moves from bedroom pop to something approaching classic-rock grandeur and huge (if detailed and personal) narrative ambitions, with nods to the Cars, Pavement and William Onyeabor. By turns tender and caustic, empathetic and solipsistic, literary and vernacular, profound and profane, self-loathing and self-aggrandizing, he conjures a specifically 21st century mindset, a product of information overload, the loneliness it can foster, and the escape music can provide.

After teasing Teens of Denial in February with the release of single ‘Vincent,’ Car SeatHeadrest has dropped its second single off Denial, the hugely hooky ‘Drunk Drivers/Killer Whales.’
