On 2 March 2012, they stated via Facebook that the new album was "finished, mixed, mastered, mooged, broinged, and beeped". Drummer Jay Watson expects it to be released in Mid 2012. Stated in an Interview posted on their website, Kevin Parker said that the next batch of songs "Represents a departure from his previous work by incorporating an expanded sonic palette, more emotional song writing, and a more pronounced narrative perspective." The album, set to be released in July 2012 was created by a similar set up as the debut album, being that Kevin Parker wrote and recorded the great majority of the album by himself at his home in Perth, Australia. <ref>{{cite web|url=http://musicfeeds.com.au/news/new-tame-impala-album-due-mid-2012/ |title=New Tame Impala Album Due Mid 2012 |publisher=musicfeeds.com.au|20 February 2012}}</ref>

This was definitely NOT vandalism. I fixed up the formatting to the regular standard, PLUS I added extra details to the article. I am baffled as to why this was considered vandalism.
