Phil Elverum, better known as the man behind Mount Eerie, has announced his follow-up to Pre-Human Ideas which came out just last year. Sauna will be out sometime in 2015 through his label P.W. Elverum & Sun record label. If you're aching to get a taste of that new material, though, he'll be performing stripped down versions of some of the tracks at his forthcoming tour dates, which you can check out below. He recorded the album over a span of 15 months in Washington and it's about "vikings and zen and real life." Sounds pretty damn cool.
