Wavves Detail 'Afraid of Heights' Album, Announce North American Tour with FIDLAR
Californian pop punks Wavves have been promising their Afraid of Heights LP for a while, teasing us with a video for "Sail to the Sun." Now, they've confirmed all of the details for the album.

The release features 13 new Wavves songs, with an added bonus if you nab the iTunes version. The album fetures a guest spot from Jenny Lewis.

In a press release, frontman Nathan Williams described Afraid of Heights with the following statement:

The general theme of the record is depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom. I feel like the narration is almost schizophrenic if you listen front to back; every word is important, even the constant contradictions and lack of self-worth. That's all a part of this record — questioning everything not because I'm curious, but because I'm paranoid.

Afraid of Heights is set to drop on March 26 through Mom + Pop. New single "Demon to Lean On" can be streamed below.

The group will also join Cheatahs and FIDLAR for a North American tour, which includes Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. The full itinerary is available below.
