Holy Wave release first single off upcoming LP and European tour dates

Holy Wave return with their 3rd studio LP, Freaks Of Nurture, to be released via The Reverberation Appreciation Society on March 11, 2016. Recorded at Cacophony Recorders in Austin, TX by Erik Wofford (Explosions In The Sky, The Black Angels, My Morning Jacket), the album will be available for pre-sale purchase February 11 on levitation-austin.com

Freaks Of Nurture collects the band’s best work to date. The album further defines the band’s carefully crafted sound, combining fluid forms of sacred surf sounds, droning riffs, and group vocals that haunt and harmonize in equal measure.
