Kicking it off (like they won the toss) is Wand, whose Next Album has been eagerly anticipated probably since right after their last one came out. Remember, when 1000 Days hit way back in the summer of 2015, it was the third Wand record to appear in a calendar year! Back then, if you didn’t like what Wand was doing, just wait a month and they’d announce another one.

A length of two “whole” years later (with, sure, time carved out for Cory Hanson‘s stellar solo set, The Unborn Capitalist From Limbo), Wand are back and with songs like “Plum” and “Bee Karma”, this new-phase sounds right promising! Since we of course have heard even more than those two (yes, awesome) songs, we can confirm .

The new quintet version of Wand seems to have even more up their sleeves than the former crew – but really, it’s just different stuff up those sleeves and probably different sleeves too. With the addition of a designated keyboard player and a second guitarist, the core Wand members now find themselves in an ever-expanding palette – just the way Wand likes to fly! Plum is rich and sumptuous, spun with dense webs of sound and stasis, mélange and melody, as Wand push farther into the strangeness of uncharted territory while also locking it down as a class-act modern pop outfit! To frost the cake most excellently, the September 22nd release date also acts as the opening flag for a mammoth run of tour dates: a month in the US, followed by the holidays and then more in the UK and the EU and the rest of this world, provided it’s all still there! Plum around, with Wand this fall.
