Guided By Voices at The Independent, by Joshua Huver

Guided By Voices’ frontman Robert Pollard is caught standing still during the bands’ 2016 performance at The Independent in San Francisco.

Guided By Voices, one of the most prolific garage-rock acts in the history of DIY rock and roll returns to the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco tomorrow, November 10, 2018. Frontman Robert Pollard and company are continuing their trek across the country in support of the March 2018 release of the band’s 25th full length album Space Gun.

Check out the music video for the album’s title track below:

Space Gun saw Pollard returning to the studio with guitarists Doug Gilliard and Bobby Bare Jr., bassist Mark Shue and Kevin March on drums. The 15-track set is touted by the band’s press release as “the most complete realization of Pollard’s talents,” but with several more albums already in the works and another 24 albums behind them, it’s truly a matter of personal taste. In fact, Pollard is already promoting a sprawling double-album, Zeppelin Over China, to be released on February 1, 2019.

But before this one has even made it to stores, Robert Pollard has written and recorded yet another full-length in record-breaking time. It’s Warp and Woof, due next April, exuberantly barrels through 24 songs in just 37 minutes, thrusting fans back into the mid-90s heyday of GBV material. Pollard and company kicked this one out in a flash, recording it in studios, club soundchecks, hotel rooms and even in the tour van.

Even further, all of that new material is being teased on four vinyl-only limited edition 7-inch EPs: Winecork Stonehenge and 100 Dougs will be released on December 7, 2018, with Umlaut Over The Özone and 1901 Acid Rock coming in March 2019.
