Brian Borcherdt Announces New Dusted Album, Shares Single ‘Backwoods Ritual’

Holy Fuck founding member readies Dusted's sophomore effort

While Brian Borcherdt is probably best known for his work as a member of manic dance music outfit Holy Fuck, he’s quietly been crafting melodic indie rock in various bands and as a solo artist since the 1990s. Borcherdt first introduced us to Dusted in 2012 with the release of Total Dust, now he’s set to unveil the project’s sophomore effort, Blackout Summer, on April 6 via Royal Mountain Records.

Dusted has served up the forthcoming record’s first single, “Backwoods Ritual.” It checks in at a breezy 1:48, check it out below.

Borcherdt reassembled Dusted as a three-piece band, with Loel Campbell (Wintersleep) on drums, and Anna Edwards on guitar/bass. You can view the artwork for Blackout Summer below.
