Preorder the album in the band’s official webstore. Swim Deep’s 2012 debut single King City (originally released on May 14, 2012 via Chess Club) was re-recorded in a new version and is taken off the album as the band’s new single. The re-release dropped on July 29 and includes a stripped version of the song as b-side. King City also comes with a new music video.
