The Dodos Sign to Frenchkiss Records, ready "Visiter"

San Francisco guitar-n-drum duo The Dodos have announced their signing to New York label Frenchkiss Records, home to Les Savy Fav, Thunderbirds are Now!, and The Big Sleep. The band is set to release Visiter, its follow-up to 2006’s self-financed Beware of the Maniacs, on March 18th, 2008. Early praise came in the form of a Pitchfork video premiere for “Fools,” the first single from the forthcoming album. Much like the song, the clip is straight-forward and simple, filled with shots of guitarist Meric Long and drummer Logan Kroeber powering through the bouncy number until their faces glisten with sweat. It goes a long way in cementing the live reputation these guys built up last year on the road with Akron/Family. Finally, in addition to the signing news, the band has announced a December 15th LA date with new labelmates Les Savy Fav, and plans to appear at this year’s SXSW festival.
