Whirr releasing ‘Around,’ playing Quenchers on summer tour


Bay Area shoegaze outfit Whirr are set to welcome a new mini-LP, titled Around, on July 9 via Graveface Records. The album’s lead single, called “Swoon,” is much heavier than anything we’ve heard from the band so far, but they haven’t lost their My Bloody Valentine-like aesthetic. You can take a listen to the track at the bottom of this post, and preorder a copy of Around via Graveface’s website. Cover art and tracklisting for the mini-LP can also be found below.

Whirr will be embarking on a North American tour in support of Around in late-July. That tour features openers Nothing on most dates, including their Chicago show at Quenchers on August 21. Advance tickets are on sale now.
