Last year, English indie popsters the Wedding Present announced plans for a new record titled Going, Going…, and while it's taken a little longer than expected to arrive, it's finally here next week. First, though, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive listen to "Kill Devil Hills" from the upcoming album.
As previously reported, the record weaves together 20 tracks, telling the story of a road trip across the United States. Anyone who has ever done a long stateside drive knows that the journey gives one plenty of time to get lost in thought, so it's hardly surprising that Going, Going… hears the band delivering their most "contemplative" and "spiritual" material ever.
You can join the band along on their reflective, emotionally charged journey through America by streaming "Kill Devil Hills" in the player below. The band will once again embark on a trip across North American for an upcoming tour, and you can see those dates listed below, as well.
Going, Going… is officially out on December 2 through Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records.
