Ahead of their upcoming album Karaoke Alone, the Aubreys have partnered with Veeps to put on a stripped-down livestream show featuring brand-new songs from the record.

Earlier this year, the duo of Finn Wolfhard and Malcolm Craig confirmed that their debut full-length was done and would be released soon.

While the Alternative Press October cover stars recorded and wrote the album during the COVID-19 pandemic, they didn’t want it to be defined by the lockdown.

“A lot of the songs were written pre-pandemic, but a lot of the songs were written post-,” Wolfhard says in their cover interview. “We definitely did not want it to be ‘the pandemic album.’ That can be pretty cringe-y. It’s such a gimmick. You’ve got to find a healthy medium. 

“I’d say ‘Karaoke Alone’ is the one song on the album that has to do with isolation, full stop,” he continues. “That’s a theme of the album: isolation. When you’re a teenager, growing up — now we’re young adults — inherently, isolation is a theme. We have gone through it. Even though we have a lot of friends that we love and adore, sometimes you just feel lonely as a kid. That’s what happens.”
