UK tour begins 21st January 2015

Toronto’s Alvvays have announced ‘Party Police’ as the next single from their self-titled album, released 23rd February 2015 via Transgressive Records. One of the most reflective tracks from their acclaimed debut, the rousing chorus of ‘Party Police’ has seen the track quickly become a live favourite in the indie-pop band’s set.

Alvvays return to the UK for a full European tour on 21st January. Having already sold out the London and Manchester dates of the run, the band recently announced new shows in those cities for September 2015. Tickets are available now.

Alvvays released one of 2014’s most talked about debuts, with the albums placing highly in the favourite album lists from outlets including Rolling Stone, NME, DIY and Best Fit, and their track ‘Archie, Marry Me’ ranking as one of the year’s best songs from the likes of Pitchfork, NME and Drowned In Sound.
