It's been a while since we've heard new music from well-loved Chicago guitar-pop troupe The 1900s, but that won't be the case for long. The band is currently gearing up to release their sophomore LP, Return of the Century, November 2 on Parasol Records.

The album will follow-up their 2007 full-length Cold & Kind, which was lauded by yours truly and many others for its 60s-inspired folk-pop goodness, as well as an early-2009 mini-album of odds and ends called Medium High. I recall hearing the band say they were expanding their sound on the new material, so I can't wait to hear what they have in store on the new release.

To get a sneak preview, check out the band's opening set for White Mystery at Lincoln Hall on Friday, August 27, where they will debut some of the new songs. More information and tickets are available here. They will also be embarking on a U.S. tour this Fall to promote Return of the Century, and will head to England in December to play the Bowlie 2 festival at the request of none other than Belle & Sebastian.
