RELAXER, is now available for stream, download and as an instant grat with album pre-order now. The band have set June 2 as the release date for their third album, which will be available in North America via Canvasback Music.
The song "3WW" was made available earlier in the month and Rolling Stone wrote that the song "showcases how much Alt-J has matured musically since their debut five years ago and their ability to go platinum despite their non-traditional song structure."
RELAXER is the follow up to the band's Grammy nominated album This Is All Yours, and finds the band working with producer Charlie Andrew for the third time.
The band had previously announced some dates of a North American tour this summer and are happy to add that they will be playing Lollapalooza in Chicago on Saturday, August 5.
