On March 26th, WAVVES will release Afraid of Heights, the band’s fourth album and their first in nearly 3 years. We’ve heard two fantastic, hook-heavy singles from the album “Sail to the Sun” and “Demon to Lean On,” but this week the band is streaming their entire new album via NPR. Listen to it on the player below:

Band leader Nathan Williams had this to say about the project:

The general theme of the record is depression and anxiety, being death-obsessed and paranoid of impending doom. I feel like the narration is almost schizophrenic if you listen front to back; every word is important, even the constant contradictions and lack of self-worth. That’s all a part of this record-questioning everything not because I’m curious, but because I’m paranoid.
