Our favourite punk trio will return with their second album, So When You Gonna… on 03 July.

Dream wife debuted their new single ‘Sports!’ as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World.

The record, much like the music video (which you can view below), is a formidable explosion of energy.

“Sports! sits on multiple levels; of satire and celebration, of nonsense and commonsense, of the body and mind, of IRL and digital,” say the band.

While this energy is set to carry through the new album, So When You Gonna… is set to cover important topics including abortion, miscarriage and gender inequality.

These topics were also prevalent when we last spoke to the band and addressing such topics with raw conviction seems a staple of Dream Wife’s infectious sound.

“It’s an invitation, a challenge, a call to action,” says lead singer, Rakel Mjöll.

Their new podcast series will also be titled So When You Gonna… and will feature one-to-one interviews with creatives about how they got into their craft.

“Playing sports is great if that’s for you, but there are so many ways to be physical, to be with your body. For us, more often than not, it’s the rock show.”

The band will touring their new material and said rock shows at festivals across the UK and Europe in the coming months including Gold Sounds festival in Leeds.
