Alvvays today announce their sophomore alnum Antisocialites will be released on September 8th via Polyvinyl. The album is the much-anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album. Coinciding with this news, the band stream their new single In Undertow. Listen/watch below.

Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep-end of reckless romance and altered dates. Ice cream truck jangle collides with prismatic noise pop while Molly Rankin’s wit is refracted through crystalline surf counterpoint.

After posting a cryptic cartoon for fans last week, the group today released the excellent strum-n-thrummer In Undertow, a breakup fantasy that is both crushing and charming for its level-headedness.

This record is a fantasy breakup arc and my life nearly imitated art.

The band will be embarking this summer on an extensive world tour. All dates can be found below.
