WAVVES

kündigen neues Album "Hideaway“ am 16.07. auf Fat Possum an

Produziert von Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio)

Neuer Song "HELP IS ON THE WAY“ - YouTube-Visualizer




Nachdem WAVVES kürzlich mit der Single "Sinking Feeling“ (Video) die Rückkehr auf Fat Possum feierten, kündigen sie nun für den 16.07. mit "Hideaway" ein neues Studioalbum an.

Zur Feier des Tages veröffentlicht der Indie-Pop-Punk Act um Nathan Williams heute, den neuen Song "Help Is On The Way“, der wie das komplette Album in Zusammenarbeit mit Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) entstand.

Nathan Williams kommentiert das Album wie folgt:
"Bei mir gibt es immer wieder Höhen und Tiefen. Ich kann super optimistisch sein und mich richtig gut fühlen, und auf einmal gerate ich ins Schleudern. Es ist, als würde ein Erdbeben mein Leben treffen und alles fällt einfach auseinander. Einiges davon ist natürlich mein eigenes Verschulden.“ Es ist diese Selbsterkenntnis, die jeden der Hideaway-Songs durchdringt und sie als reife Abrechnung mit dem, was er ist, kennzeichnet.

„Hideaway" enthält Williams' bisher universellste und eindringlichste Songs, darunter die bereits veröffentlichte Single "Sinking Feeling", die auf Platz 1 der SubModern Specialty Singles Chart und auf Platz 2 der meistgekauften Songs bei NACC steht, sowie den neuen Track "Help Is On The Way", der heute veröffentlicht wird. Das Album ist der Nachfolger ihres 2017er Albums "You're Welcome" und erscheint, nachdem Consequence of Sound sie zu einer der 100 besten Pop-Punk-Bands aller Zeiten ernannt hat.



About Wavves:
A little over a year ago, Nathan Williams found himself back in San Diego, writing what would eventually become Hideaway, his seventh album as Wavves, in a little shed behind his parents’ house. It was also the place where he made some of his earliest albums, before he became known for his uncanny ability to write songs that sneered at the world while evoking pathos, sympathy, and a deep understanding of how sometimes we’re our own worst enemies, and that can be okay. Williams’ return to his childhood home was not just a symbolic attempt at jumpstarting creativity. It came as a result of a series of major life changes.

A decade ago, Williams released King of the Beach on the maverick indie label Fat Possum. The album was a cocky collection of pop punk gems that catapulted him into the public consciousness, eventually prompting a jump from Fat Possum into the major label system, where he released two albums before becoming disillusioned by the lack of creative agency available to him. In 2017, Williams self-released You’re Welcome on his label, Ghost Ramp. Now, Williams has returned to Fat Possum with a barbed collection of anxious anthems that grapple with the looming sense of doom and despair that comes with getting older in an increasingly chaotic world. “He’ll always skew toward the Bart Simpson [character],” says Matthew Johnson, founder of Fat Possum. “But that does not mean that he doesn’t have some commentary, and once in awhile, it’s totally spot on.”

After realizing the material he’d been working on in the hideaway was starting to take shape, Williams, along with bandmates Stephen Pope and Alex Gates workshopped the songs in a series of now-abandoned studio sessions, before linking up with musician and producer Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio to help fully realize their new songs. Williams and Sitek bonded while geeking out over music for hours every day. Sitek would pull up Johnny Cash deep cuts and honky tonk obscurities—songs that sonically don’t have much in common with the music Williams makes, but plumb the same emotional depths of the soul. It was a clarifying moment for Williams, who wasn’t quite sure what direction he wanted to take the songs he’d been working on. “We’d listen to old music and not get much done, but it was really important in the end,” he says. You can hear the result of these sessions on career high points like “The Blame,” which takes its cues from the Replacements’ best moments, but doubles down on a sort of yearning sadness. It’s full of hard earned wisdom and melancholy, and it sounds like nothing else Williams has ever done.

Meanwhile, on the album’s title track, Williams incisively cuts through the pitfalls of empty self-affirmations, his voice straining against lyrics like “I’ll do my best to hideaway, from all of the bullshit chasing me, I don’t care if time’s erasing me, it’s been torture existing this long” In the hands of a less direct performer, it’d be easy to hear this as self-pity, but Williams’ embrace of that hopelessness shines through and becomes something else entirely: an embrace of the comfort that is right in front of him, of making his world small because he need to. Of changing—or not changing—what’s around him because it’s what he has the power to do. “I don’t have it in me to say that things are so much better,” Williams says. “It’s just not my story. It’s good if it’s someone else’s story, but I’ve also learned to realize there just isn’t redemption.” Ultimately, though, Hideaway is not an album about wallowing in depression. It’s about finding a way through all the noise and landing on something that approximates uneasy acceptance.
