The band made a surprise announcement: Their new album is finished and will be available only through their website, starting on October 10th. There are two options to buy: A "discbox" edition that includes vinyl, CDs and bonus materials, or just a simple digital download, for which the buyer gets to set the price. Update: The album's out, the critics have started to weigh in.
Editorial note: Whoa! You've found a super-old post here on BuzzFeed, from an earlier era of the site. It doesn't really represent where we are anymore, and may in fact be totally broken, but we're leaving it up as a part of our early history.
