Bundles include an exclusively designed t-shirt. Shriek will be released digitally, as well as on CD and 150 gram vinyl with the first 1000 copies pressed on orange vinyl.

In support of the new album, the band will be heading out on tour, which includes stint at Coachella and SXSW. Wye Oak will also be using this tour to spread love across the country: “We’re very excited to be working with Air Traffic Control in order to make this possible” Wasner said.
