Three years after breaking onto the scene with their self-titled debutAlvvays have announced their return.​​ The Canadian indie outfit will release their sophomore album, Antisocialites, on September 8th via Polyvinyl Records.

The new effort’s 10 tracks find the band diving “back into the deep-end of reckless romance and altered dates,” according to a press release. Such is the case with the lead single, “In Undertow”, a wave of strumming dream pop that crests with a surfy edge. The track finds lead singer Molly Rankin taking a dizzying but pragmatic look at a failing relationship. “You find a wave and try to hold on for as long as you can/ You made a mistake you’d like to erase and I understand,” she sings. “What’s next for you and me?/ I’ll take suggestions/ We toss and turn in undertow/ Time to let go.” Take a listen below.

Pre-orders for Antisocialites are going on here. Find the album art and tracklist ahead.
