Psych-rockers the Bright Light Social Hour will release ‘Space Is Still the Place,’ the sophomore follow-up to their 2010 self-titled debut, this March. They’ve also unveiled the forthcoming LP’s lead single, ‘Infinite Cities’ (listen above), and a slew of accompanying tour dates (find them below).

Singer-guitarist Curtis Roush said when making the album, the trio was inspired by the struggle of their peers – particularly those residing in the south.

“We realized how few individuals were working jobs they felt self-actualized by to some extent. They’re pedaling for survival,” he said in a statement. “Our generation has grown up in continuous financial crises, a lot of unemployment, a lack of opportunity, widening inequality and pervasive issues of race, gender and class. We’re taking a lens to some of these gritty realities and espousing an optimistic, frontier-looking gaze into the future.”

“We’re taking forms of influences from soul, blues and gritty southern music and ushering them forward,” he added. “The idea evinces the south can be a vibrant, egalitarian place.”

The 10-track ‘Space Is Still the Place’ will arrive on March 10 via Frenchkiss Records. You can check out the track list below and pre-order it on iTunes.
