Widow City, The Fiery Furnaces’ sixth album, was released earlier this month on Thrill Jockey Records.

The band described the album, as well as the other musicians along on the tour, with tongues firmly planted in cheek in a recent post on its web site.

“Someone in some street said to someone standing to the side that [Widow City] was the band’s best album yet. You should therefore order quickly. It is available on compact disc and double gatefold vinyl.

“Someone else on some other street said to the same person mentioned above that the band never sounded better. It features Robert D’Amico sitting and playing a drum kit, Jason Loewenstein standing and playing his bass guitar, Eleanor Friedberger standing around singing, and Matthew Friedberger lounging there, playing four or five keyboards.

“You should therefore order your tickets quickly.”
