Just became aware of this. Jim makes an appearance apparently.

Vinyl being done by PIAPTK

http://piaptk.limitedrun.com/products/566499-floating-action-hold-your-fire-2xlp
Only 300 vinyl 2xLPs being pressed.  50 of those are handmade and are sold out.  I picked up one of the remaining 250, plus the lathe-cut 7" containing the unreleased track My Blood is Bright Red.

From the PIAPTK site:

Floating Action - Hold Your Fire 2xLP PIAPTK-196

http://piaptk.limitedrun.com/products/566499-floating-action-hold-your-fire-2xlp

THIS IS A PREORDER. WE EXPECT THAT RECORDS WILL BEGIN SHIPPING AROUND VALENTINES DAY IF NOT SOONER. ANY OTHER RELEASES PURCHASED WITH THIS RECORD WILL SHIP WHEN ALL RECORDS ARE READY.

We are so excited to release the new, double LP from NC's Floating Action. Seth Kaufmann, besides being the sole player on most Floating Action records, is also the secret weapon/hired gun that adds the finishing touches and production to everyone from Pop superstars to Indie Rock stalwarts. The new 21 song double album includes guest vocal appearances from Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Angel Olsen, and Shannon Whitworth.

Check some of it out here: https://soundcloud.com/balladesports

Limited Edition of 300 copies, 50 of which are handmade by Seth himself using hand painting and silkscreening. (Photos not yet available). Handmade editions include a special bonus 7" Semi Flexi lathe cut with the unreleased song, My Blood is Bright Red. We only have 20 copies of this version available!

If you miss out on the handmade edition, you can add on the Semi-Flexi lathe cut for only $6 (available only during preorders, will never be repressed).

These come packaged in hand assembled, Taiwanese-Style Bootleg covers, on fancy label-less weirdo splatter vinyl configurations, hand made by Mike Dixon of PIAPTK. Every one is different, and they are all weird. Mike spent 5 days hunched over an industrial press in NJ making these records and hand-mixing the vinyl pellets. They are all a combination of Green, Silver, Blue, Yellow, and Clear.
This is a co-release between PIAPTK, Baby Gas Mask, and Soild Gold Extended Services Division.

PIAPTK doesn't seem to realize it, but I bet FA does. Body Questions was available early too. If you order the vinyl you get an immediate download of the full album.

This new album is really, really good. A return to the sonically glorious form of Desert Etiquette after a couple forays into a poppier direction. This album puts you in a mood -- a great one. The vibes shoot right out of the speakers. 

EDIT - On second listen, might be ready to call this Seth's masterpiece.

Great first listen, thanks for the heads up!  These guys were awesome in Columbus opening for MMJ, last June.

A lotta good songs on here, but it's a bit long for my taste. Fake Blood might actually be my favorite Floating Action LP.

I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

Controlled Burn isn't just one of the best songs Seth has ever written, it might be one of the best goddamn jams I've ever heard. Had the album spinning at my cottage late last night and this song stopped everyone in their tracks. We immediately put it on again.

What an album!
