According to Laemmle Theatres website, a currently untitled performance film of the band performing songs off their new album is set to premiere on September 8th; the untitled album will be released at midnight on September 9th. The synopsis on the website also says that the record “has an intimacy and starkness that the film’s photographic style will reflect,” and that it will be shot in “black and white, color and 3-D.” Additionally, none of the tracks on the album will be released ahead of the premiere date as singles or exclusives, making “the screening of the film the first medium through which anyone anywhere will be able to hear & experience the songs.”
