Following the news of them dropping a Nina Simone tribute album (Nina, out December 2nd), Xiu Xiu now announce they'll be releasing a new full length of original material this February.

The album will be called Angel Guts: Red Classroom (after a seventies Japanese erotic film) and will be released via Polyvinyl (4th) in the US and Bella Union in the UK (3rd). The press release announces the album as the "beginning of Xiu Xiu's descent from grayness into the deepest blackness endurable. It is the sound of Xiu Xiu's death. The subject matter—racialized sex, double suicide, double penetration, criminality, fear of physical harm - is unsuitable for the faint of heart. But when the heart has stopped beating, only the soul remains to carry on."
