Oklahoma rock band Fossil Youth has teamed with Substream today to announce that they’ll be releasing a brand new full-length album on November 4 through Take This To Heart Records. Titled A Glimpse Of Self Joy, the record was mixed and produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Somos, Menzingers) and will serve as a follow-up to last year’s Intertwined With You EP.
The album’s lead single, “Watercolor Daydream,” offers a great introduction of what to expect from the whole of the album, likely to appeal to fans of everything from Sorority Noise to the Spill Canvas. Speaking on the themes of the single, Fossil Youth explain:
“‘Watercolor Daydream’ is about building yourself up from your mistakes and trying to make positive changes in your life. Beneath that want for change, however, is a layer of being afraid of leaving the things you know and the struggle one faces while trying to progress as a person with desperation for being loved on their shoulders.”
Listen to “Watercolor Daydream” below and let us know what you think.
Pre-orders for A Glimpse Of Self Joy are available now in a variety of formats through Take This To Heart. Each bundle order will receive a free poster and sticker.
Starting tomorrow, August 11, Fossil Youth will head out on tour supporting Bonfires along with the Weekend Classic and Living Means on select dates.
