The prolific musician has shown no signs of slowing down since the dissolution of Guided By Voices, releasing From A Compound Eye in January and touring throughout spring.

Pollard’s latest album, Normal Happiness, is due out October 10 on Merge and he’ll embark on a brief tour in mid-November in support of it. He’ll be accompanied by his Ascended Masters band – Tommy Keene, Jon Wurster, Jason Narducy and Dave Philips.

Tour dates run from November 9-18, starting in Bloomington, Indiana, and finishing in Northampton, Mass.

As on the previous album, Pollard and producer Todd Tobias played all the instruments on Normal Happiness.
