New Album Absolute Loser Announced by Eric D. Johnson

We are delighted to announce that Fruit Bats is back and is releasing the brand new album Absolute Loser on May 13th.

Absolute Loser is the first album that Johnson has recorded under the Fruit Bats name since 2011's Tripper and it represents a triumphant return to name, form, and self. Despite implications, its title refers to the furthest depths of loss itself, rather than the state of those who have lost something. It's the most honest, most confessional album of Fruit Bats' career.

Pre-Order Absolute Loser today and select special bundles that include Fruit Bats t-shirts, totes, and an Absolute Loser print.
