Absolutely Free, the band that rose from the ashes of Toronto's DD/MM/YYYY, are set to release their self-titled debut album on October 14 via Lefse. The band have taken their time -- three years -- to hone their sound, that incorporates psych, pop and krautrock. (Wish Caribou still sounded like Andorra? It's in the same groovy ballpark.) We've got the premiere of "Vision's" from the album and you can stream it, and check out another track, below.

Having been a potent live force from pretty much the beginning, Absolutely Free will be on the road this fall, including an extensive US tour with Alvvays. Those dates include Alvvays' already announced show at Rough Trade on November 8 (tickets). All dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below...
