Ra Ra Riot Announce Album & Tour

New York indie orchestral outfit Ra Ra Riot have announced plans for LP number three. Wes Miles and associates will follow up 2010’s The Orchard and 2008’s The Rhumb Line with a new full-length entitled Beta Love. Produced by Dennis Herring and recorded in Mississippi, Beta Love will be Ra Ra Riot’s first release since the departure of cellist Alexandra Lawn. Beta Love is apparently inspired by “the works of cyberpunk novelist William Gibson and futurist Ray Kurzweil’s musings on technological singularity and transhumanism.”

In other news, the band has announced an extensive North American tour running through this winter. Take a look at Beta Love’s 11-song track list and Ra Ra Riot’s upcoming tour schedule below and pick up the new album Jan. 22 via Barsuk. [P4K]
