    Wand have announced a new album called Vertigo. The follow-up to 2019’s Laughing Matter will arrive on July 26 via Drag City. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘Smile’, which comes with a video directed by Connor Clarke. Check it out below, along with the album cover, tracklist, and Wand’s upcoming tour dates.

    Currently a four-piece with Evan Backer, Evan Burrows, Robbie Cody, and Cory Hanson, Wand created Vertigo from 50 hours of live improvisations. The album also features string and woodwinds arrangements by Backer.
