Night Moves is back! The psych-tinged Twin Cities rock band announced Tuesday its sophomore album, Pennied Days, will arrive March 25 via English label Domino. 

Produced by John Agnello (Hold Steady, Sonic Youth, Motion City Soundtrack, Kurt Vile), the new LP comes four years after Night Moves' full-length debut, Colored Emotions. That record scored the band international press love, plus opening slots on tours with Father John Misty and Lord Huron. Night Moves cites farflung influences — Leon Russell, Curtis Mayfield, Suicide — in the press release announcing Pennied Days

"A lot of the songs are about trying to find yourself and what your future will look like and who you are — life overall," reports frontman John Pelant.

Night Moves also dropped a brand-new music video Tuesday for lead single "Denise, Don’t Wanna See You Cry." It bumps; check it out below. You can pre-order the limited-edition "deluxe" vinyl version of Pennied Days here

The band — downsized to just Pelant and bassist Micky Alfano after founding member Mark Ritsema went solo as Suzie — is currently circling the Twin Cities, with upcoming tour dates in Sioux Falls, South Dakota (Jan. 22), Menomonie, Wisconsin (Jan. 28), Winona (Jan. 29), and Duluth (Jan. 30).
