It's been a busy week for some of Denver's biggest acts.
First Gregory Alan Isakov announced that he was releasing a new album this fall. Then, on July 13, the Lumineers dropped a new EP. And now Denver's DeVotchKa has announced a new album, This Night Falls Forever, coming out August 24.
The act will be touring the world, starting August 23 in New York City and wrapping up in Europe in December.
To celebrate the tour and album, the group dropped a new lyric video for the song "Straight Shot," a nostalgic look at life before the band was signed.
The lyrics open with the lines: "I can draw a straight line/Through my mind/Right back to the good times/Back when all the stars were aligned/Before all the paperwork got signed."

It's the sentimental stuff of soundtracks, stirring and catchy.
"This song is like a moonlit swim through heartbreak, in a sea of ghosts from your past," DeVotchKa frontman Nick Urata says in the announcement for the album. "When you realize the old neighborhood may be gone forever, but you can carry it with you through the darkest of days."
