Wax Idols streaming new album, ‘American Tragic’ (listen)

Wax Idols

Hether Fortune, who spent a good chunk of the last couple years playing in White Lung, has yet to make the same sounding record twice, though American Tragic bears more similarity to 2013’s Discipline And Desire that that did to their garagey debut, No Future. This one’s still got some of the gothy elements, but here Fortune (who played everything on the LP except drums) swings for the fences for a more widescreen appeal. (She’s still in the ’80s, but this is more 1987 than 1981.)

Bill wrote the above about Wax Idols‘s new album, American Tragic, over the summer, and now the whole thing is here to stream. It officially comes out on Friday (10/16) via Collect Records. Listen below.

Wax Idols will also be in NYC tonight (10/14) for the Collect CMJ showcase at Baby’s All Right, which BrooklynVegan is co-presenting. The showcase is headlined by label head (and former Thursday frontman) Geoff Rickly’s band No Devotion, and also features Creepoid and Foxes In Fiction. Tickets are still available (proceeds go to Callen Lorde) and badges will be accepted.

It’s their only CMJ show, but they have other tour dates including a return to NYC on Halloween. All dates are listed, with the new album stream, below…
