Wye Oak announces new album 'Shriek,' releases "The Tower"

It's been three years since indie duo Wye Oak released fantastic their third album Civilian but now the band is ready to hit the scene again with a new album titled Shriek. The album will be released by Merge Records on April 29.

Check out the song "The Tower" from Shriek below that takes the band's sound in a new direction with a more keyboard and drum driven groove accented by fuzzy bass guitar. It's a big leap from the guitar-based sounds of Civilian.

As we previously mentioned, Wye Oak and Future Islands are touring together in March and will play the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw on Wednesday, March 5. Tickets are available via Ticketfly for $16.
