U.K. indie rockers British Sea Power have announced details of their fifth album, ‘Machineries of Joy,’ which drops April 1. The band wrote the follow-up to their 2011 release ‘Valhalla Dancehall’ in the mountains of northern Wales and recorded in their hometown of Brighton, England.

“Various things are touched on in the words – Franciscan monks, ketamine, French female bodybuilders-turned-erotic movie stars,” singer Yan says of ‘Machineries of Joy’ in a press statement. “The world often seems a mad, hysterical place at the moment. You can’t really be oblivious to that, but we’d like the record to be an antidote – a nice game of cards in pleasant company.”

He also says the band would “like to think the album is warm and restorative.”

British Sea Power have mapped out a U.K. tour to promote the disc that kicks off in Exeter on April 4 and wrap up on April 17 in London. Check out their complete itinerary here.

‘Valhalla Dancehall’ peaked at No. 14 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart in 2011 and spawned the single ‘Who’s In Control.’ A lead single for ‘Machineries of Joy’ has yet to be announced.
