"Wooden Shjips are back in action!"

So says the excellent voiceover heard throughout the band's nostalgic throwback of an album trailer, announcing their new album, Back To Land. Looks like Ripley Johnson grabbed some time away from Moon Duo (who spoke to us recently about the album) to record the new LP, available November 11 via Thrill Jockey.
