Head to the replies to hear a new track from Tigers Jaw called "Hum," which is the lead track from the band's forthcoming fourth full-length album, due out early next year. The track is featured on the A-side of a new 7" single, which will be released Nov. 19 via Run For Cover, and which has an acoustic version of another song from the upcoming LP as a B-side. That 7" is available for preorder in the RFC webstore.
