London psych-rock faves TOY return with the follow up to 2013's Join The Dots this autumn. Though it's been a few years since the release of Join The Dots, TOY have been busy -- they've toured extensively, collaborated with Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) on the side project Sexwitch, plus underwent a lineup change (Alejandra Diez left and was replaced by Max Oscarnold).

During the second half of 2015, TOY headed back into the studio to record their third studio album. The resulting dark psych/rock album Clear Shot features ten new glorious, breathtaking and mystifying tracks. Clear Shot was recorded at EVE studios in England (famous for experimental and vintage recording equipment) and was mixed in Los Angeles by Chris Coady, who reportedly utilized some of the reverbs and vocal processors used on Prince's Purple Rain.

Clear Shot will be released on October 28th.  TOY fans have even more to look forward to though -- a selection of tracks recorded during the Clear Shot sessions that didn't make the album will be released on a companion EP, which also arrives October 28th through Heavenly Recordings. Viva la TOY!

Stream TOY's brand new single "Fast Silver" below (via Stereogum) and pre-order Clear Shot through Heavenly Recordings here. Catch up with the band on their official site or Facebook.



If you're not familiar with TOY, remedy that immediately and stream TOY's phenomenal "Kopter" (from their self-titled debut album) below. EPIC!
