The Skinny: True Widow is streaming “HW:R,” a new song from the upcoming album Circumambulation via SoundCloud, listen to it below. The five-minute track perfectly encapsulates the Texas trio’s seemingly effortless ability to create highly melodic and memorable songs with a rootsy, organic spin on guitar-centric shoegaze.

Pre-order packages for Circumambulation are available on CD/LP/Digital and a deluxe vinyl version that contains a custom letter-pressed art print, designed by DH Phillips and hand painted by the band. The band plays a headlining date this evening at The Bottletree in Birmingham before joining label mates Baroness for a May 31 date at Trees in Dallas and a June 1 performance at Chaos in Tejas in Austin.
