Philly quartet The Districts are preparing to return with their upcoming album, Popular Manipulations, on August 11th through Fat Possum. So far, they’ve teased the full-length with a trio of new songs: “Ordinary Day”“If Before I Wake”, and “Violet”. Today, the rock outfit has unveiled yet another new track, “Salt”.

Taking cues from “If Before I Wake”, the reverberating “Salt” has a glossy sound buoyed by sparkling synths, but with scaled back guitars this time around. Frontman Rob Grote’s soaring vocals rise above the fray with contemplative lyrics like, “Thought you were hopeful/ The last of the glow/ Until you burn out/ Until we burn out.” Hear it below.

The Districts are currently in the midst of an extensive tour in support of the follow-up to 2015’s A Flourish and a Spoil, which includes dates with My Morning Jacket and appearances at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Montreal’s Osheaga. Find the most up-to-date itinerary below.
