We Are the City 'Violent' (album stream)
BC-based prog-tinged indie rockers We Are the City recently announced the release of Violent, and you can stream the album in advance right here.

The new record arrives on June 4 through Hidden Pony Records and follows up the band's debut In a Quiet World and 2011's High School EP. It was recorded at Monarch Studios in Vancouver with Tom Dobrzanski (the Zolas, Said the Whale, Hey Ocean!).

According to a press release, the trio "continues to prove it is unafraid to leave open space, employ a colliding drum fill, or experiment with unlikely sounds and arrangement" on Violent. The LP boasts everything "from soaring highs and hushed comedowns, to dense syncopations going toe-to-toe with noise-soaked crescendos and delicate pop melodies."

As previously reported, We Are the City will be taking the new material on tour around Canada, and you can check out the dates here. Give Violent a listen below now before it hits shelves next week.
