Blood/Candy is the seventh studio album by American alternative rock band The Posies, released on September 28, 2010, by Rykodisc. It is the band's first new album release in five years following Every Kind of Light.
The Posies say this is something totally different from what they've tried before. "We subscribe to the 'evolve or perish' philosophy," co-founder Jon Auer says in a statement. "We directed ourselves to new places with this recording and tried not to travel down familiar paths when it could be avoided. Expect the unexpected"
"One of the things I was hoping to do on this record," says Auer, "was go back to the idea of Ken and me writing most of the songs, versus the last recording we did, where we kind of cobbled things together in the studio with everyone. I just felt like we needed to have that time to prepare and actually sit down and write." As a result, Stringfellow says, "I would say that I feel the songs on this one a bit deeper... there's stuff from way down in there that I think gives it a little more soul."
