Preachers was recorded in under three weeks. It is the first My Jerusalem album genuinely made by a band, not just performed by a group of musicians. Pushing aside hard drives and laptops to make way for analog tape machines and vintage keyboards, what singer Jeff Klein describes as the "Post-Modern Southern Gothic Soul" sounds of Preachers were born from organic, live performances Eno carefully captured and tweaked.
Preachers is the follow-up to 2010's critically acclaimed debut, Gone For Good. Along with European festival appearances at the Frequency Festival, Musikfestwochen, and Rock Im Saal, the band toured and played shows with a eclectic set of bands including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Har Mar Superstar, Avett Brothers, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and White Arrows.
Preachers is due for release 9 October 2012.
