Dopapod have announced they will release a new album, MEGAGEM, next month, along with a batch of fall tour dates that will take the band to New Year’s Eve and into 2018, when they will take a year-long hiatus to “refocus on themselves.”

The new record will be released on October 27, and the lead track, “Plaese Haalp,” is now available for “name your own price” download and can be heard in the in-studio video below.

The band’s ensuing tour will start out with a Northeast run that hits Philadelphia, New York, Burlington and more before moving to the Midwest, Colorado and more and rounding out with a New Year’s Eve show at Boston’s Paradise.

Dopapod will then embark on a year-long hiatus, inspired by the TED Talk The Power of Time Off, which outlines the benefits of closing up a company and having employees work on their own projects for a year once in a while.

“Every seven years this guy closes his design firm and everyone who works for the company works on their own projects for the year,” says keyboardist Eli Winderman. “When they come back, everyone is inspired and working with a newfound sense of excitement. MEGAGEM and the fall tour are our way of seeing everyone before we take some time to work on other parts of our lives. In doing so, we hope the progress we make in our personal lives will cross over into Dopapod. From all of the other bands who we’ve come up with, to all of the music fans that have shown us such incredible support over the years, we just want to say thank you. Dopapod would be nothing without you.”
