Tough Age Share New Single "Waiting Here"

The band's fourth album is on the way (although this song won't be on it)
Tough Age Share New Single 'Waiting Here'
Toronto trio Tough Age have been tweeting about their new album — but before they reveal any details about that, they've shared a new stand-alone single. The track is called "Waiting Here."

The song is a boppy, poppy nugget of New Zealand-style garage rock, its lo-fi production adding grit to the bouncy rhythms and sugar-sweet vocal melodies.

It was recorded along with the new album at Montreal's Bottle Garden studio with Peter Woodford, and the credits note that it was subsequently "fucked up" back home in Toronto by singer-guitarist J.E.S. It was mastered by Jay Arner.

Hear "Waiting Here" below.

Tough Age confirmed in a message to Exclaim! that "Waiting Here" won't be on the band's upcoming fourth album. Previously, Tough Age tweeted that their album was supposed to be called Everyday Life until Coldplay used that same album title (see below).

Tough Age also compared the album to Emerson, Lake & Palmer's Tarkus — perhaps indicating that it features an extended song-suite on one half and a handful of shorter tracks on the other.

Additionally, Tough Age recently contributing to a new cassette comp from rock music newsletter Some Party. Under the Circumstances Volume 1 includes the 2017 EP track "'Surf Music'" and a previously unreleased cover of Wire's "The 15th."

Tough Age's new album will be their first since 2017's Shame.
