ALVVAYS RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR "IN UNDERTOW"

ANNOUNCE JAY SOM & NAP EYES AS SUPPORTS FOR NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

ANTISOCIALITES OUT SEPTEMBER 8TH ON POLYVINYL
Alvvays are back with a brand-new record due September 8th, and today they've released the video for the first single "In Undertow." Analog visual feedback and moon-man cameos fill the video singer Molly Rankin describes as "aquacosmic psych meets public access TV." Rankin says, "I'm aware of my own drowning fixation and fascinated by that bizarre lunar-tidal relationship. We've already filled our water video quota. Space is a trippier ocean."

"In Undertow" is the first new music from the band since the release of their much loved self-titled debut album in 2014. The song is an exciting glimpse into what fans can expect from their sophomore album. Alvvays will be touring extensively this fall and will be joined by Jam Som and Nap Eyes as their opening supports. All dates for this must-see lineup are listed below.

Antisocialites is out September 8th and can be pre-ordered here.

Praise for "In Undertow":

"...Alvvays never second-guess their core strength: anthemic, arm-swaying hooks that aim for the stars even when the sky is gray." Pitchfork 

"The band has kept their rivers of reverb, which sometimes makes them sound as though they're playing to an empty middle-school gymnasium, an image that fittingly blends sweetness with melancholy." - Vulture 

"The single echoes with a longing for finding solace after going through a breakup." - Paste

"...lead single "In Undertow" contains all of the elements that were initially so charming about the Toronto five-piece blown up to fuzzy and dreamy new heights." -Stereogum 

"Expect more lovelorn sun-spotted jangly jams done in only the charming way the Toronto quartet know how." - My Old Kentucky Blog 

"...a very nice dose of their melodic, emotional indie pop, complete with a shoegazy guitar solo." - Brooklyn Vegan
