Former Lives is out now on City Slang in the UK/Europe, out 10/17 in Japan on Big Nothing Records and 10/12 on Spunk Records in Australia.

Regarding Former Lives, Ben told Rolling Stone:
“It’s more Big Star-y and rootsy..I didn’t set out to make something distinctly retro, but if you strip out modern production, that’s just what rock & roll sounds like. It just ends up more timeless.”
