guidedbyvoices-pleasebehonesWhat was thought to be gone has reemerged as prolific musician Robert Pollard is bringing back Guided By Voices. GBV’s new album Please Be Honest will be released on April 22nd via Rockathon Records.

What makes this album so different is the fact that GBV main man Pollard plays all instruments. With the announcement GBV also shared new single “My Zodiac Companion.” In a quote made to MOJO Pollard describes the single as a “heavy drama written for the glam-rock stage. Kind of like Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
