North Carolina's Late Bloomer are following 2014's Things Change with their third album, Waiting, on July 29 via 6131 Records (formerly home to Julien Baker, Touche Amore, Joyce Manor, etc), their first for the label. We're premiering "Listen," which kinda starts out sounding like late '90s / early '00s emo, but then explodes into this massive, Replacements-sounding chorus, and it's also got a pretty epic, melodic, classic rock guitar solo in there too. If you're into the last few years of the emo/indie rock crossover, you'll probably find that these guys do it really well. Listen to "Listen" below.

Late Bloomer are also touring this summer, including a Brooklyn show on July 9 at Muchmore's. They also play The Fest. All dates are listed below.
