On May 19, 2017, the band released their sixteenth studio album, Goths, via Merge Records. Bassist Peter Hughes described the album’s theme as goth, covering the bands that “never made it out of Fender’s Ballroom, the Gene Loves Jezebels of the world—the ones whose gothic paths were overtaken by the realities of life, or of its opposite.” Goths marks the first time the band did not incorporate any guitars, excluding bass guitar, into an album.
