Lee Ranaldo Releasing A New Solo Album In March 2012

It's clear that things between the members of Sonic Youth, one of the greatest rock bands of our time, are a bit... awkward at the moment. While we continue to hope (pray) that the band will still have a concrete future ahead of them, guitarist Lee Ranaldo has today announced (via Matador) that he has a new solo record, called Between The Times And The Tides, coming out on March 20.

His first new solo record since 2008's Maelstrom From Drift, Ranaldo promises that Between will include some of his best work yet. And he'll be joined in this outing by Nels Cline, Alan Licht, John Medeski, bassist Irwin Menkin and Steve Shelley, with Jim O’Rourke and Bob Bert also making appearances. So yeah, it's pretty much guaranteed to be an interesting outing.

Having just played our area with Wild Flag, we'll be able to see Lee again on December 16 at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. Grab tickets over here for sure.
