Wavves Finish New Album

    Big news from the Wavves camp: Nathan Williams and his new version of Wavves–essentially Jay Reatard’s former band–have finished recording a new album, which Williams says will be out this summer. Here’s what he wrote on Twitter: 

     

    “SOUNDSCARAAAZAAAAAAYYY AND WILL BE OUT THIS SUMMER. SEEEEEE YA!”

     

    Here’s hoping that Reatard’s rhythm section can elevate Wavves’ game to Reatard-like heights. That’s not all for Wavves: The new version of the band has a handful of dates this summer. Here they are:

     

    06-18 Toronto, Ontario – Lee’s Palace (NXNE)
