Atlanta's Microwave recently shared two new songs off their upcoming third album Death Is A Warm Blanket that showed the band going in a much heavier direction from their emo-y alt-rock roots, and the just-released third single "Float to the Top" is no different. It's got elements of '90s post-hardcore, sludge metal, and more, and it's a dark, filthy song that's truly like nothing they've done before. It reminds me of jumps like the ones Cloud Nothings made from self-titled to Attack on Memory, Citizen made from Youth to Everybody Is Going to Heaven, or Arctic Monkeys made from Favourite Worst Nightmare to Humbug. It's a total reinvention, and it's worth hearing for any fan of heavy rock music, whether or not you were already a Microwave fan. Listen to the new song and the two previous singles below. The album comes out September 13 via Pure Noise Records (pre-order), their first release for the label.

Microwave are also playing Riot Fest and going on a US tour opening for Boston Manor, alongside Heart Attack Man and Selfish Things. The tour hits NYC's Gramercy Theatre on November 21 (tickets). All dates are listed below.
