Braid have announced the release of their first album in 16 years, No Coast. The album will be released on July 8 via Topshelf Records and was produced by Will Yip (La Dispute, Title Fight). Check out a statement from Chris Broach of Braid below:

“I think we feel like we want this to be an introduction to Braid more than a follow-up to previous material. We wanted to capture the spirit and dynamic tension that comes from having two guys up front that have a lot to say and a rhythm section that helps shape the songs. We spent a lot of time looking to where we could give each instrument its own space on the record—everything has its place, and its very deliberate.”
