    Blood/Candy? That sounds yummy, if your name is Edward Cullen! It's also the name of the new Posies album, which the band will support on their upcoming U.S. Fall 2010 tour alongside co-headliner Brendan Benson and opening act Aqueduct. Blood/Candy - again, yum!- will be out September 28.

    The Posies' founders, Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, will also join Brendan Benson's set contributing bass, guitar, keyboards and backing vocals. Both Jon and Ken have a remarkable knack for interchanging their musical roles and are active members with other bands. They have lent their production and musical contributions to a myriad of artists including R.E.M., Snow Patrol, Big Star, the Minus 5, Bob Mould, Neil Young, the Disciplines, John Wesley Harding and William Shatner. Yes we said William Shatner. How is that for eclectic and diverse.

    Blood/Candy is the band's first platter in five years. It is worth the wait, so check it.
