It’s been a whole season since we last heard from the Love Me Nots, and they’ve been gracious enough to let us know that in 2011, you can expect their fourth full-length album to be released, with a tour to follow!
From their newsletter, they let word out that the new album (title TBA) is another collaboration with producer Jim Diamond, recorded back in Detroit. Likewise, they’ve also welcomed Jay Lien, their original drummer, back into the band. He appears on the album, and will take the stage for the Love Me Nots gig in Tempe, Arizona. Expect the album sometime in March, 2011.
Upon its release, the band will then tour France in April; no word yet on any US or UK dates at this time. (Dates posted after the jump below).
And finally, they’re also happy to report that lead singer/keyboard player Nicole Laurenne is now cancer-free, happy and healthy. Be sure to stop by their MySpace or Facebook page to send your well-wishes.
After the jump, the Love Me Not’s upcoming French dates (and a few American dates).
