Puppy will be the follow-up to last year’s Saturation III, wrapping up their Saturation trilogy. They later packaged the records together for the Saturation Boxset, which included the previously unreleased Saturation Drafts and a making-of documentary. They also filmed and self-funded a full-length film for the albums.

It’ll also mark their first release since signing a deal with RCA Records reportedly worth $15 million. The group originally planned to release an album called Team Effort in 2018. They later scrapped the idea saying they had “spoke to God and She told us to save the album for another time.” It’s uncertain whether that record will ever see a proper release.

Later this month, the group hits the road for their Stereo Spirit North American tour. Shows kick off May 25 in Clifton Park, CA and wrap up June 15 in Tucson, AZ. After that, they’ll do a brief run of European dates to finish out the summer. Tickets are on sale now. Click here for the complete itinerary.
