Braids announce new album 'Shadow Offering'


Montreal-based indie art rock band Braids have announced that their new album, Shadow Offering, will be released on April 24th through Secret City Records.

Produced by Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie, the new album finds the band at their most personal, delicate and considered. To coincide with the album news, the band shared their lead single and video ‘Young Buck’. 

“We wrote this song to capture the nervous anticipation of desire, the delicate chase of seduction, the highs and lows of obsession, and the humour in between,” stated singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston. “To want to possess someone, make them desire you, fall for you, only to learn that to lust is not to love.”

“There’s more hopefulness in this record than anything else I’ve written,” said Standell-Preston. “I think the songs are more human, more tangible, more honest.”
