The Van Pelt Returns with New Album "Artisans & Merchants" 19 January 2023
After twenty-five years of waiting, New York City cult indie favorites The Van Pelt return on March 17th with their upcoming fourth studio full-length, Artisans & Merchants. This is not a reunion album. This is vindication. This is a stand-alone album with incredibly vital songwriting, and for lovers of The Van Pelt, listening to Artisans & Merchants is like hearing the voice of a dear friend you haven't seen in years. The album was recorded and mixed in Summer / Fall 2021 by Jeff Zeigler (The War On Drugs, Kurt Vile) at Uniform Recording in Philadelphia, PA, and features guest appearances by Nate Kinsella and Ted Leo among others.
Listen to the premiere of the new single "Punk House" today at BrooklynVegan, along with a brand new music video. Pre-orders are available now on limited edition vinyl and digital as well as an exclusive t-shirt bundle. All pre-orders include an instant download of the new single
