ElwayThe four-piece indie rock band from Fort Collins, Elway, have premiered the first new song, “Ariel” from their forthcoming album, Leavetaking. The new album is set to release digitally on June 25th and physical CD/LP on July 2nd from Red Scare. A stream of “Ariel” can be found on AVclub.com and pre-orders for the new album can be found on interpunk.com.

Guitar/vocalist Tim Browne had this to say about Ariel: ” I was eyebrows deep in teenage post-breakup malaise at the age of 25 and I wanted to try my hand at waxing Americana…so I wrote this straightforward four-chorder that’s way fun to play and sing, with a repetitive hook that sort of drives it all home. Title is a reference to my girl Sylvia Plath’s horse. Respect.”

In support of their new album, Elway have announced tour dates for July and August. The band will be touring with label mates Masked Intruder and Sam Russo on the “Red Scare Across America Tour”. The tour kicks off in Chicago on July 8th and will wrap up in Milwaukee on August 17th.
