Published May 21, 2014Toronto-based pop outfit Alvvays have been swirling around anticipation for their upcoming debut album thanks in no small part to the success of singles like "Adult Diversion." Today, they've finally shared the full details of the release.
The self-titled album features nine songs from the group, including the previously released "Adult Diversion" and "Archie, Marry Me."
"The resultant album is loud and clear and sure," a press release suggests. "Flood your ears."
Alvvays was recorded by Chad VanGaalen at his Yoko Eno studio in Calgary, then mixed by Holy Fuck member Graham Walsh (Hannah Georgas, METZ) and John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile).
Polyvinyl Records will issue the album on July 22, with a Canadian release coming through Royal Mountain Records. The full tracklisting is below, and that's the album art above. To pre-order the record, go here.
