"The record is like a homage to electric guitar," says Carney. "We took a simple approach and trimmed all the fat like we used to."

The "Let's Rock" Tour will hit cities including Chicago, Nashville, New York, Los Angeles, and Austin. Special guests Modest Mouse will provide support on all dates, and Shannon & The Clams, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, *repeat repeat, and Jessy Wilson will each open select shows on the tour.
