Widowspeak stream new album

Widowspeak stream new album 'Expect The Best', ahead of it's August 25th release.

Today, Widowspeak is streaming their forthcoming release Expect The Best via Hype Machine.The full-length will be available via Captured Tracks on August 25. Widowspeak have already released singles “Dog,” “When I Tried” and “The Dream.” In support of the new album, the band will tour the US this fall, beginning in Boston on September 8 at The Great Scott and concluding in Brooklyn at Rough Trade on October 13. All dates are listed below including newly confirmed shows in the US and Europe.

Expect the Best is the follow up to 2015’s All Yours. While previous albums were conceived as a duo with lead guitarist Robert Earl Thomas, the new LP finds Widowspeak playing to the specific strengths of the current touring incarnation (James Jano on drums, Willy Muse on bass). The album, recorded by Kevin MacMahon (Swans, Real Estate), exhibits a marked increase in energy that reflects the band’s live show and the organic way it was created: by four people in a room together.
