Everyone's favorite alt country fuck ups The Broken Family Band have revealed their new album will be called Balls. How charming.
Speaking to the Cambridge Evening News, frontman Steve Adams said: "It's all done and we are just mixing it. We've gone a bit more rock this time."
Balls will be bouncing into the shops in January 2006 and is likely to be released via Track And Field.
Adams reckons the new album is more upbeat:
"'Welcome Home Loser' was a bit miserable, it was about getting rid of a lot of dark stuff. There will always be an element of that in our music but we have lightened up a bit for this one."
Adams' solo album Problems is due for release in November. He says he's dropped the fake American accent and swapped it for a fake English one instead.

Oh and the headline is a Team America reference by the way. So now you know.
