It's a good time to be a music fan in Milwaukee and not just because of a small little sonic get-together starting up this week down by the lake.

This afternoon, Maritime announced the release date for "Magnetic Bodies/Maps of Bones," the local band's fifth album. The long-anticipated follow-up to the group's 2011 LP "Human Heart," will drop on Friday, Oct. 16, released through Dangerbird Records. 

The band – born in 2003 after the break-up of The Dismemberment Plan and The Promise Ring – may bring a taste of its new tunes to its upcoming Summerfest gig, playing at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 27 at the KNE New Music Stage.
