Release info: Silverfish Trivia, a 7 song, 22 minute mini LP will be the next release in the Robert Pollard discography. The LP will be the first release on Bob's new label Prom Is Coming. Silverfish Trivia is lush with the beautiful string arrangemets that book end this (mini) album, Come Outside and Speak In Many Colors. It is powered by Circle Saw Boys Club, the track that is destined to become a Pollard classic. The lyrical imagery that Pollard creates on this track is equal to his greatest works. Silverfish Trivia is anchored by Cats Love A Parade. This incredible psychedelic ride clocks in at nearly 8 minutes, and by the end you could have sworn you’ve heard 5 or 6 different songs. The LP will be distributed world wide by Revolver and will be in stores on April 17th and also available directly from RobertPollard.net.

Additional Release Info: "The new Bob" is a phrase often heard from fans of Robert Pollard. As in, "Have you heard the new Bob?" It usually refers to the latest project that Pollard has recorded and released. But in this case "the new Bob" has a new meaning. Prom Is Coming is Pollard's new label (replacing the Fading Captain Series).

"Silverfish Trivia" finds Pollard once again in the studio with producer and musical partner Todd Tobias. The results sound different from anything they've done before. A seven songs in twenty-two minutes - "Silverfish Trivia" is lush with the beautiful string arrangements courtesy of Chris George of NYC-based string quartet Invert.

Powered by tracks like "Circle Saw Boys Club" and "Cats Love A Parade", and overflowing with lyrical imagery equal to Pollard's greatest works, Silverfish Trivia is destined to become another Pollard classic. So there you have it, the first release on Robert Pollard's new label, Prom Is Coming. It's called Silverfish Trivia... you know, the new Bob.

Originally planned to be a full-length album. Some songs originally slated for this album that were played on the last tour were: "Piss Along You Bird", "Met Her At A Seance", and "Life Of A Wife".
