Wye Oak Stream New Song ‘The Tower,’ Announce April Release of ‘Shriek’

Wye Oak

After three years of touring to support 2011’s ‘Civilian,’ Wye Oak return this spring with ‘Shriek.’ In advance of the album’s release, the duo are streaming the new song ‘The Tower.’ (Listen below.)

Due out on April 29, ‘Shriek’ finds Wye Oak exploring a new sound, thanks to Nicolas Vernhes of the Rare Book Room, who co-produced the record with the band in Brooklyn.

The album is available now for pre-order, and fans that go through iTunes will receive an instant download of the ‘The Tower.’ Opt for the physical copy, via Merge Records, and you’ll get an exclusive t-shirt when the disc drops in the spring.

With a new album also comes a new tour. Wye Oak are hitting the road in March and will stay busy through May, playing various cities in the U.S. and select gigs in Europe. (Click here for dates.) In addition, the band wants to give back to the cities they’re playing, so they’ve teamed with Air Traffic Control to donate $2 from every ticket sold on the tour to local charities of the band’s choosing.
