Based in Montreal, QC, Wake island’s members hail from Lebanon, Canada and the US. While touring in Lebanon during a European and Middle Eastern tour, the band recorded  a new single “Submarine.” Much like their previously recorded singles and albums, the song is an angular art rock/post-punk song, but within it there’s a sense of modern anxiety and a subtle hint of the paranoid. It suggest that some of our anxiety may be actually self-imposed or pushed by larger forces – well, maybe. 

The band is on tour for most of the early part of October, and it includes stops in Toronto, ON; Ypsilanti, MI; Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Columbus, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; and an October 16th stop at the Bowery Electric – presumably for CMJ
