Wax Idols releasing new LP, playing the Empty Bottle on tour


San Francisco’s Wax Idols are set to welcome their second album, Discipline + Desire, on March 26 via Slumberland Records. Discipline + Desire is their first for the label, and you can take a listen to its gothy lead single “AD RE:IAN” at the bottom of this post. The LP’s cover art and tracklisting can also be found below.

Wax Idols will be embarking on a spring North American tour in support of Discipline + Desire. Though that tour hasn’t been announced in full, we do know that they’ll be visiting Chicago for a performance at the Empty Bottle on April 20 with TV Ghost and Radar Eyes. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (1/25) at 10AM CST.
