Of Montreal’s False Priest has not even been released yet, but band leader Kevin Barnes is already promising a new EP from his glam-pop collective.
According to a recent interview with Barnes, The Controller Sphere EP is due out in spring of 2011, and represents the third part of a trilogy that he first envisioned back during the writing of 2007’s Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?. The first two parts of the trilogy are 2008’s Skeletal Lamping and the still-upcoming False Priest. The songs on the EP were all written at the same time as the material on False Priest, and at least one came from the same sessions with producer Jon Brion.
There has not been an announced release date for The Controller Sphere, but False Priest is due out Sept. 14 via Polyvinyl.
