Today’s a lovely day because Alvvays just announced their highly anticipated new album, Antisocialites, out September 8th, 2017! Stream the first single "In Undertow" and learn more about the new record below!

Across its 10 tracks and 33 minutes the Toronto-based group dive back into the deep end of reckless romance and altered dates. Through thoughtful consideration in basement and abroad, Alvvays has renewed its Scot-pop vows with a powerful new collection of manic emotional collage.

To write Antisocialites, Rankin traveled to Toronto Island -- working in an abandoned classroom by day and sleeping a few feet from shore at night -- to avoid a stifling heat wave in the city. “I carried a small PA on the ferry in a wheelbarrow,” she recalls. “Every morning I would listen to my favorite records on the beach, then I’d write melodies and record demos in the classroom.” After tracking with keyboardist Kerri MacLellan and bassist Brian Murphy at Kingsize in LA, Rankin and guitarist Alec O’Hanley continued recording and mixing in their Toronto basement. A few friends descended to play on the record, including Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake.

Antisocialites is available to pre-order on the following formats:
  • Early Bird Edition 180-Gram Dark Blue + Light Blue Starburst LP (limited to 1,500)
  • 180-Gram Opaque Yellow LP
  • CD

  • Bundles (with new t-shirt design, 6 enamel pin set, or past releases)
