Wye Oak have announced a new LP: "The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs", the band's follow-up to their excellent 2016 album "Tween". It will be out 4/6 on Merge. This will be the seventh studio album from the Baltimore natives. Wye Oak are an indie rock duo comprising Jenn Wasner (guitar, vocals) and Andy Stack (drums, keyboards, vocals), who took their name from a symbolic 460-year-old tree in their home state of Maryland. Formed in 2006 under the moniker Monarch, Wasner and Stack recorded their first album in varied spots, bouncing around various basements and apartments, eventually landing a record deal with indie heavyweight Merge.
