Stars set to release new album ‘The Five Ghosts’ on June 22, 2010

by Gary Fletcher

Just heard the track Fixed from Stars forthcoming album The Five Ghosts and am really digging it.

Stars formed in Toronto in 2000 by singer Torquil Campbell and Chris Seligman. They relocated to NYC and then back to Canada and are now part of the Montreal indie rock scene. Torquil Campbell (vocals), Amy Millan (vocals/guitar) and Evan Cranley (guitar) are also members of the great Broken Social Scene. This album is the 5th release from the band and the last since 2007’s, In Our Bedroom after the War. The new album will be released on the bands own label Soft Revolution (licensed everywhere else in the world except Canada through Vagrant Records).

They will embark on a tour this summer and will play The Five Ghosts in it’s entirety, along with fan chosen selections. You can pre-order the album through itunes and if you do, you’ll get the 4-song Séance EP as a bonus. You can also order directly from the band’s website where they have a Limited Edition 7″ Box Set + Digital + Instant Séance E.P. for $100 or a CD + 12″ vinyl + Lyric Book + Digital + Instant Track for $42.50 or the LP or CD alone.
