Montreal's Braids are gearing up for the release of their second album, Flourish // Perish, which is due out on August 20 via Arbutus/Full Time Hobby/Flemish Eye. They've shared three album tracks so far -- "Hossak," "Fruend," and "In Kind" -- and you can take a listen to them at the bottom of this post. Cover art and tracklisting for the LP can also be found below.

Braids will be embarking on a large fall North American tour in support of Flourish // Perish. Many of those dates feature an opening set from Hundred Waters, including a performance at Schubas on October 29. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now.

All dates, album info. for Flourish // Perish, and song streams from both acts lie after the jump...
