Five years after their acclaimed record Antisocialites Toronto quintet Alvvays return with Blue Rev. The album was more than worth the wait, receiving accolades from Pitchfork (8.8 Best New Music), The Guardian (who hailed it "one of the best records of the year"), NME, DIY, Stereogum and more. Blue Rev was Rough Trade’s Album Of The Month (October 2022) and at #28 achieved the band’s highest UK chart position to date. Blue Rev doesn’t simply reassert what’s always been great about Alvvays but instead reimagines it. There are 14 songs on Blue Rev, making it not only the longest Alvvays album but also the most harmonically rich and lyrically provocative.
Antisocialites was released in September 2017, the follow up to the band’s eponymous debut which came out in the summer of 2014.
The band comprises Molly Rankin, Kerri Maclellan, Alec O'Hanley, Abbey Blackwell and Sheridan Riley.
