After sharing a clip hinting at new music last month, the group have announced that they’ll be releasing their third studio album ‘Blue Rev’ on 7th October via Transgressive, and they’re sharing new bop ‘Pharmacist’ to get us even more hyped for what’s to come.
In our five star review of their last album ‘Antisocialites’, we said, “Just as unique as that now-classic debut, Alvvays have inadvertently gotten their wish all the same. They’ve wound up in a league of their own.”
