The Raveonettes Set US Release Date

The Raveonettes will release their third full-length, Lust Lust Lust, to American audiences on February 19th, 2008. The follow up to 2005’s Pretty in Black is the Danish-bred noir-pop duo’s Vice Records debut. Released in the UK on November 12th, the album has already enjoyed a wave of critical praise -- NME dubbed it the Rave’s “most engrossing album to date,” while The Fly calls it “a bleak, uncompromising masterpiece, it’s their best yet.” The US release will include a pair of bonus tracks not packaged with the UK version, and will be available on LP, CD and in digital format. While Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo are currently trekking across Europe, the duo is planning a US tour behind the record in March, centered around a host of appearances at SXSW in Austin, Texas. If you missed the premiere at Stereogum earlier this month, here’s another chance to check Lust Lust Lust’s first track, the cavernous, reverb-drenched “Aly Walk With Me.”
