Wye Oak announce shows and limited-edition rarities 7-inch in September

At the end of September, Wye Oak will embark on a special tour. The band describes what the audience can expect at these performances:

We’re so excited to set out on a brief run of smaller, more intimate shows this fall, where we’ll be trying out a bunch of brand-new material for the first time, taking questions from the audience, and just generally exposing y’all to our legendary brand of TMI-style stage banter. Come for a sneak peek at what’s next for us, or just to say hi.

Also, on September 22, Merge will release “Spiral” b/w “Wave Is Not the Water”, a limited-edition 7-inch on red vinyl. Pre-order your copy now! Jenn and Andy told us a little about each track, both of which were originally released in partnership with Adult Swim:

“Spiral” popped up around 2012, at a time before we began work on Shriek. We were just starting to experiment with synthetic and more pop-oriented sounds, and also got assistance on the marimba from our friend Rod Hamilton, with whom Jenn was sharing a loft at the Copycat in Baltimore at the time. 

“Wave Is Not the Water” was created in the early months of 2017, without either of us ever setting foot in the same space. Andy was touring as the drummer for Lambchop and volleying the recording back and forth with Jenn via email, as seems to be the current state of things. 

Pre-order “Spiral” b/w “Wave Is Not the Water” now in the Merge store, and don’t miss these very special evenings with Wye Oak!
