New Sonic Youth incoming

Sonic Youth are going to release a new compilation album of B sides and old tracks in December.

The album, called The Destroyed Room: B-Sides And Rarities, comes as bass player Kim Gordon says the band are likely to leave Geffen after the new record comes out. She said:

“I don’t really think they want us to stay. They fired a few key people working on [‘Rather Ripped’] a week before it came out, [including] our A&R person – he worked on our last record with us, and that was the first time we had an A&R person in five years, but we liked him. Also a marketing person who had really good ideas. So, I don’t know.”
