- A post on the band's official Twitter account asking if "Anybody want(s) to buy a church?," accompanied by a link to a Montreal-based real estate listing, inferred they would no longer be recording at their fabled church-studio hybrid for this album. The listing for the church was eventually updated as "sold" for $325,000.
- So where will they be recording and with whom? How about in New York with James Murphy , confirmed to be on board as producer (for at least three songs), in addition to longtime collaborator Markus Dravs.
- As of early spring, the band was still at work, presumably with one James Murphy, in DFA's Manhattan studio.
- A release date was confirmed when the band responded to a fan's tweet reading, "you're my favorite." "Thanks. Our new album will be out October 29th" probably wasn't what said fan was expecting to hear in return. The image below, presumably from a 1976 fire at the Montreal Biosphère, seems to be important (possible album cover?). It was included with the tweet and has since appeared on the band's official website (where they double-confirm the release date), along with a new promo pic of the band.
