Violent Femmes have revealed details of their new album, Hotel Last Resort will be released July 26th via PIAS.

The title track, which you can stream below, features Television's Tom Verlaine on guitar. Bassist Brian Ritchie explains: "We didn't really give him much instruction but he did exactly what we hoped he'd do. He clearly has an affinity for the song. He must've really clued in on the lyrics and he really interpreted them with a guitar." Gordon Gano added: "One of the greatest thrills of a long recording career is getting Tom Verlaine to play on one of our songs. It's just amazing to hear that sound."

The album also features vocals on one track from pro skateboarder Stefan Janoski who has teamed up with Nike to create a Violent Femmes shoe.

Ritchie explained more about the album: "I think it's probably the best one we've made since HALLOWED GROUND, which is a long time. It's just a very focused album, the songs all hold together. It's a classic album, in the sense that people should actually sit down and listen to the whole thing. It's not too long. It's short, it's punchy, it's solid, it's to the point, goes a few different directions but it always comes back to the core approach and then it's over. Hopefully, you'll think 'I want to hear that again.'"
