To celebrate 25 years of Low, the experimental US rock group have announced the pending release of their brand new album Double Negative. Founding members Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, joined by longtime bassist Steve Garrington, are set to embark on an extensive European and US tour, which will run from June through to November 2018. The album was recorded with producer BJ Burton in Wisconsin and will be released by Sub Pop on 14 September.

This video features three tracks from the record, directed by Ben Chisholm, Karlos Rene Ayala and Mark Pellington, respectively. UK artist and longtime Low collaborator Peter Liversidge helped create the album's cover art.

Low will perform at Leeds Brudenell Social on 19 June and at Queen Festival Hall's Meltdown festival in London on 20 June. For further dates check the band's website.
