Widowspeak have announced a new album, Expect the Best, and shared a video for its first single, “Dog.” They have also announced some tour dates. Expect the Best is due out August 25 via Captured Tracks. Below is the “Dog” video, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

A press release says of the band’s sound on the album: “Sonically, they exist somewhere in the overlap between somber indie rock, dream pop, slow-core, and their own invented genre, ‘cowboy grunge.’”

Frontwoman Molly Hamilton had this to say about the album in a press release: “In the past I’ve felt compelled to write songs that are more optimistic than I’m actually feeling, as if I could make it true, as if everything in the past was significant or beautiful in a way, even if it was painful. But the truth is that not everything makes sense, and not every day of your life is an experience of clear cut emotional clarity. I struggle with this compulsion to pull away from people, pull away from the things I enjoy doing, and sometimes literally picking up and moving away when I am feeling uneasy and anxious about my future in a given space, physical or mental. Social media these days can exacerbate that as well.”

Expect the Best Tracklist:

1. The Dream
2. When I Tried
3. Dog
4. Warmer
5. Good Sport
6. Let Me
7. Right On
8. Expect the Best
9. Fly On the Wall
