Chicago rock trio Lifeguard have announced their debut release on Matador. The record compiles two EPs, last year’s Crowd Can Talk, originally issued by Born Yesterday, and Dressed in Trenches, a collection of five new songs. The new release is out July 7. Below, watch the video for Lifeguard’s new song “17-18 Lovesong.” Also below, find the band’s forthcoming tour dates with Horsegirl.

Formed in 2019, Lifeguard are bassist and vocalist Asher Case, drummer and percussionist Isaac Lowenstein, and guitarist and vocalist Kai Slater. The trio recorded both Crowd Can Talk and Dressed in Trenches at Chicago’s Electrical Audio studio with engineer Mike Lust in the span of 12 months.

“More than old records—before that, before anything—we’re influenced by live shows and people around us,” Slater said in a press release. “The inspiration comes from playing shows with people and having that mind-blown moment of seeing some friend play at Schubas or Book Club. It’s happening on these tiny little scales of seeing kids play live and [knowing] this is something new and interesting.”
