Exciting news to announce! Ribbon Music's inaugural signing John Maus will release his forthcoming album, We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves on June 28th in North America. Upset the Rhythm will release the album on June 27th throughout the rest of the world. You can now pre-order the new album here on CD/LP.  The first pressing of the LP comes on heavyweight vinyl and is housed in a hand-numbered classic tip-on gatefold jacket.

We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves breaks new ground for Maus. The shirt pulling and air punching of his impassioned live performance is finally captured in all its frenzied appeal alongside a tender inner space that wasn’t as apparent on his previous albums. It’s a record where promise takes the lead for the first time, providing a counterpoint to John’s default existential calling.

Here's the video for the lead track, Believer, which takes us deep into the often blurry yet always determined world of John Maus:
