NEWS: Alvvays announce third album ‘Blue Rev’ and reveal new Single, ‘Pharmacist’

Dream pop quintet, Alvvays, are back with their long-awaited follow-up to 2017’s Antisocialites.  Their third studio album, Blue Rev, is out on 7th October via Transgressive.

Fans will be delighted to hear that Alvvays have just released the first single from the album, ‘Pharmacist.’ Hazy, discordant and thrilling, this two-and-a-half-minute shoegaze explosion is brimming with psychedelic swirls and undulating distortion. Woven with the dreamy, silken threads of Rankin’s vocals, this is an exciting jumping-off point into their third album .

After winning the 2018 Juno Alternative Album of the Year, with Antisocialites, Alvvays started work on their third album, but were interrupted when singer/songwriter Molly Rankin had her recorder full of demos stolen. Soon afterwards a basement flood ruined their gear and then there was the pandemic, but good things come to those who wait, and the third album Blue Rev, was recorded in 2021 in LA with Big Thief and War on Drugs producer, Shawn Everett. The highly anticipated album is well worth the wait, with ’14 songs hitting all the right chords and cementing their cult status.’

Last month Alvvays teased their return by announcing Autumn 2022 US tour dates. The tour will start in Chicago this October and hit all major US markets. They are also scheduled to play Courtney Barnett’s Here and There Festival’ in August. All dates are listed below.

 Blue Rev  is out on Oct. 7 via Transgressive and can be pre-ordered here: Pre-order Blue Rev.
