Balance and Composure mentioned at their intimate BV-presented show in Brooklyn last fall that they had a new album on the way, and now details are here. It's called Light We Made, and it'll be out on October 7 via their new label home, Vagrant Records. (Is that Vagrant's first emo signing since the '00s?) The album was produced by scene leader Will Yip, and its lead single is "Postcard." It's something different for the band, who normally are floating somewhere between post-hardcore and grunge. His singing on this one kinda reminds me of... alt-j? Hear for yourself below.

B&C are on the Pomona, CA date of the Hum / Touche Amore shows (the NYC date has Basement instead), and they also just announced a tour with Foxing and Mercury Girls (that's some triple bill). The tour hits NYC on November 17 at Warsaw. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/29). All dates are listed below.
