The Rosebuds are set to release their fifth LP, titled Loud Planes Fly Low on June 7th via Merge Records. Care of a widget below, you can download the album track "Second Bird of Paradise" (for the price of your email address).

After The Rosebuds released Life Like, their fourth album for Merge Records, the marriage that inspired the band ended. Ivan and Kelly were done, and The Rosebuds--Merge's buoyant pop-rock couple who'd youthfully named their first album The Rosebuds Make Out--were in limbo.

But Loud Planes Fly Low, The Rosebuds' fifth and most inventive album to date, is a sad-eyed and bright new start for Kelly and Ivan, beautifully born of the struggle to define their relationship as bandmates--and more importantly, friends--outside of the context of marriage. It wasn't easy. Written and rewritten, recorded and re-recorded in fits and starts, Loud Planes Fly Low allowed Kelly and Ivan to have the very conversations about their relationship that they'd long avoided. [Merge]

They'll embark on a headlining tour in support of the LP starting June 10th, in their home state of North Carolina. The tour will wrap up in late July, just in time to head out with Bon Iver as the supporting act on their 2011 Summer Tour.

The two acts will arrive in Chicago on July 24th, to play The Chicago Theatre.
Tickets are still available.
