Don’t be too bummed if the Smith Westerns aren’t coming by your city on their North American jaunt in early 2012, because there’s good news for fans of the Chicago band no matter where you reside. After they hit the road with Porcelain Raft and Bleached, the Smith Westerns plan on heading back into the studio to work on their third album. The currently untitled record, aka LP3, will be a big one for the guys, who caught a ton of buzz earlier this year with the release of their sophomore effort, Dye It Blonde.
