Written by on April 25, 2012

Canadian new wavers Men Without Hats and Trans-X are set to release new albums in May.

Love in the Age of War will be Men Without Hats’ first album of new music since 2003’s No Hats Beyond This Point and comes on the heels of the band’s release of its new version of “Pop Goes the World.”  In 2011, lead singer Ivan Doroschuk jump-started his comeback with his first U.S. tour in over 20 years before heading into the studio to record, during which he previewed some of the music appearing on Love:  “It has just been a blast, it’s translating a lot into what we are doing.” Doroscuk said of the live shows and creating the new works during a September 2011 interview on Revenge of the 80s Radio.

Coincidentally, Doroschuck’s former schoolmate and fellow Montreal native Pascal Languirand also announced an official release date for a new Trans-X album, High-NRG. In addition to longtime fans of the band and their 1983 international hit, “Living On VIdeo,” Languirand has enjoyed a continually increasing fan base at his live shows on the U.S. west coast and Mexico in recent years after a short hiatus from teh music industry. In an interview to be aired on an upcoming Revenge of the 80s Radio show, Languirand says the tracks on Hi-NRG are mainly recordings from the past that he re-worked for the CD: “I just collected the best tracks in all my career that I didn’t like the original production too much, so I decided to refresh everything… most of these tracks I composed in 1987 and I brought them with a new life, a new structure and a new sound “

Trans-X’s Hi-NRG will be available on May 21, according to Languirand; Men Without Hats’ Love in the Age of War is set to go public on May 22.
