Alex G is pleased to announce his new album, Rocket, is set for a May 19th, 2017 release.

Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.

Alex G will be playing a special album release show in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday May 18th. The show will be at The Park Church Co-Op, and tickets go on sale this Friday here.  Also announcing today is an all-ages hometown Rocket show on July 8th at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets go on sale this Friday here. Both shows will feature special guests.

Stay tuned for more tour dates to be announced soon.
