Alvvays - Watch the new ‘Dreams Tonite’ video

Truly a long awaited record, Alvvays' second album Antisocialites is out!. The limited edition white vinyl has now sold out, but you can get one of the last remaining copies on tape, the black edition or CD, as well as the bundle including 3 enamel pins and a patch, from our shop. To follow, there's now also a video for Dreams Tonite online - thanks to Pitchfork for the first post. It features archival footage from Montreal's 1967 International Universal Exposition and you can watch it on the band's YouTube channel.

"Canada was at its coolest 50 years ago in Montreal at Expo '67. We fetishize retro-futurism and are thrilled our buddy Matt Johnson was able to facilitate our half-century temporal trip back to peak pop and op."

Antisocialites is 10 tracks long, and you'll have hopefully heard In Undertow, Dreams TonitePlimsoll Punks  and Lollipop already, but the rest you can now find to stream and in record stores.

Rankin wrote Antisocialites, from an abandoned schoolroom in Toronto Island, and slept a few feet from shore each night, "I carried a small PA on the ferry in a wheelbarrow," she recalls. "Every morning I would listen to my favourite records on the beach, then I'd write melodies and record demos in the classroom."

We've also added the whole album to our New Releases playlist.

The band brought their UK tour to an end, and celebrated the release of the album, on 8 September at Koko and are now playing across Europe before returning for a massive North American tour next month.
