One half of the prolific duo The Fiery Furnaces, Matthew Friedberger, has announced the follow up to his Solos LP series of last year. This new solo album, titled Matricidal Sons Of Bitches is slated for release on October 29th.

The album has an interesting concept too, based around dreamt up film scores for fake movies, all courtesy of Matthew's mind no doubt, with inspiration for the project said to have come from time spent in Paris and the B-movie studios known as Poverty Row.
