Alternative band Joywave has announced they'll be hitting the road this spring in support of their upcoming album, Possession, due out March 13.

The Possession Tour will kick-off in April with stops in Charlotte (Tickets), Philadelphia (Tickets), Nashville (Tickets), Englewood (Tickets) and Seattle (Tickets). Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 10, with select presales beginning Thursday, Jan. 9. VIP packages will also be available.

"Our heads are spinning," frontman Daniel Armbruster has said of the album. "Every day is crazier than the last. Every screen we walk by is shouting at us, demanding our undivided attention. Control over our own lives is constantly under siege."

Joywave released a first listen of the album with the upbeat new single "Half Your Age." A major theme of Joywave's new album is control and the loss of it. Possession takes it cover art and some audio samples from the Voyager's Golden Record, which was curated by Dr. Carl Sagan and launched by NASA in 1977 to give potential lifeforms in the universe a glimpse of life on Earth.
