NYC band Nation of Language just released their new album, A Way Forward, a new wavey treat featuring 10 songs that all could have appeared on John Hughes soundtracks, loaded with cascading arpeggiated synths, bouncing rhythms, and frontman Ian Devaney's soaring vocals that glisten with just the right touch of melodrama. You can listen to the album below.

The band have just announced a 2022 North American tour, including shows in Baltimore, NYC, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Kansas City, Chicago, Indianapolis, Toronto, Montreal, and more. The NYC show is at Webster Hall on March 3 and they have two L.A. shows at the Lodge Room on March 19 & March 20. Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Friday, November 12 at 10 AM local time.
