Success! You're on the list.

It’s been five years since the last record from Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina‘s low-key punk-folk duo The Evens, and they’re back on Nov. 21 with a new 7-inch on Dischord. The A-side is called “Warble Factor” and the B-side is “Timothy Wright.” (Could the latter be about the late gospel singer? Cool.) According to the one-sheet, the band recorded the single at Inner Ear in Arlington with Don Zientara, and hopes to release a full-length in 2012.

Y’know, it’s been a pleasantly active year for Dischord: a Joe Lally co-release, a new Edie Sedgwick album, unreleased Faith and Void material, the forthcoming Office of Future Plans, the usual battery of reissues, and now this, a single from what’s become the label’s flagship act. Plus, rumor has it the Fugazi live archive isn’t too far off from the roll-out stage. I guess right now is a pretty good time to be a punk.

Here are The Evens at Fort Reno this summer:
