    Five years after Antisocialites, Alvvays have finally readied a new album called Blue Rev. The third LP from the Canadian band arrives October 7th via Polyvinyl, and first single “Pharmacist” is out now.

    Since releasing their sophomore album in 2017, Alvvays have lost band members, endured a flood that ruined their equipment, and had the demo tapes for LP3 stolen. Still, Blue Rev clocks in at 14 tracks, the group’s longest album yet. The band now comprises of singer Molly Rankin, guitarist Alec O’Hanley, keyboardist Kerri MacLellan, and newcoming drummer Sheridan Riley and bassist Abbey Blackwell.

    While Rankin’s ethereal vocals remain in tact, Alvvays turn up the volume for first single and album opener “Pharmacist” with upbeat drums and that classic shoegaze guitar whoosh. Check out the track and Blue Rev‘s artwork and tracklist below. Pre-orders are ongoing.
