If the sun appears to be shining a little brighter and you have a little extra pep in your step, you must have already read the good news. If not, I will let you in on a little Secret: Joyful Noise Recordings, those flexi-loving sons of guns out of Indiana, have signed indie mainstays Sebadoh to their record label. The first order of business for Lou Barlow and Co. is a 10″ vinyl release of last year’s Secret EP, previously only available in digital format on Bandcamp and CD during their 2012 tour. This is just an appetizer, however, as Joyful Noise will also be serving up Defend Yourself, the band’s first full-length album since 1999’s The Sebadoh. The Secret EP is already available for pre-order (with immediate digital download) via the label’s website and officially hits the streets June 25. Defend Yourself has a release date of September 17.
