We mentioned earlier today that the new Wavves album would be out this year, and now it's officially announced. It's called You're Welcome, and it drops on May 19 via the band's own Ghost Ramp label (not in April, as Wavves tweeted back in December). It follows 2015's V, which was a joint release between Ghost Ramp and Warner Bros.

Two songs are out from You're Welcome now, the title track and "Daisy," which are a bit less polished than the last album. "Daisy" is classic Wavves, but "You're Welcome" is a little darker and has some hints of "The Good Life" by their recent split-mates Weezer. Listen to both songs and check out the tracklist below.

We also mentioned today that Wavves are playing two headlining NYC shows with Post Animal (the psych band featuring Steve from Stranger Things) after they tour opening for blink-182. Turns out those shows are part of a lengthy headlining tour that has Post Animal on one leg and Kino Kimino on the other.

The NYC shows happen May 12 at Bowery Ballroom and May 14 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for Bowery and MHOW are on AmEx presale now, and they go on sale to the general public on Friday (3/3) at noon. All dates are listed below.
