Fort Collins, Colorado punks Elway have announced their first album in four years, The Best of All Possible Worlds, due April 1 via Red Scare Industries (pre-order). It features their 2021 single "The English Wishbone" as well as new single "Maximum Entropy," which premieres in this post.

"It means nothing, therefore it means everything," vocalist/guitarist Tim Browne tells us about the song. "I've either reached a point with hallucinogens that I've ascended to a new level of existential understanding or I'm so postmodernly braindead that I'll settle for a petty truism as a life philosophy. Either way, 'Maximum Entropy' is a song about how the terminal pointlessness of our having ever existed at all can be, and often is, beautiful."

It's an anthemic, heartland punk ripper, and it comes with a video featuring footage of Laika the Soviet space dog. Check it out below.

Elway have also announced a July tour with their Red Scare labelmates The Holy Mess, who have been on hiatus since 2016. That includes a Brooklyn show on July 13 at Sovereign. All dates are listed below.
