Fans of Windy City alternative music, fractured jazz-punk and all things Kinsella have reason to celebrate: Owls is back, and will be releasing a new album, Two coming out in March. This will be the group's first release in more than a decade.

The band — featuring musicians from Owen, Joan of Arc, Make Believe and others — originally grew out of seminal, legendary scene act Cap'n Jazz. Following a Cap'n Jazz reunion tour in 2010, the members regrouped with the intent of recording new material under that original name, but the process eventually led them to the realization that they were actually making a follow-up Owls release instead.

Look for Two on March 25, to be issued via long-running indie imprint Polyvinyl, or get your dibs in now by pre-ordering a sweet limited-edition vinyl pressing here.

New track, "I'm Surprised" below.
