    Fiery Furnaces, the Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger brother-sister duo of experimental folk-pop, have announced their signing to Thrill Jockey records. They have also announced the completion of a new record entitled Widow City that will be the band's Thrill Jockey debut (and sixth album to date). No release date has been set, but fans who trekked out to the band's set of summer shows got a preview of the new material.

    A note from the band's "attorney and friend" on Thrill Jockey's website gives details on the current tour: "Strictly as a concession to convention, the band will attempt a few songs from its new record, Widow City, including the song 'Widow City.' But that album is an autumn affair. This tour finds the group in a summer mood."

    To see the band in their summery best and get a glimpse of Widow City, check them out on their remaining tour dates:

    July 19 - The Gallivan Center - Salt Lake City, Utah
    Aug 26 - Socrates Sculpture Park - Long Island City, New York
