Portland OR’s punk-ish post-rockers, Braveyoung, are streaming the first single, “Wonderful,” off their upcoming full-length, Misery and Pride. Misery and Pride is due out on March 24th via The Flenser and sees the group retain their punk roots, but create a recording full of somber instrumentals.

Misery and Pride is loaded with “brooding drones and chamber string arrangements” while the album gets its name “from text in Czech author Milan Kundera’s novel, Ignorance.”

Misery and Pride Track Listing:

01. Wonderful
02. You Pigs Should Find A God To Love
03. Blue Beyond The Hill
04. Oh Love That Will Not Let Me Go
05. Such A Worm As I
06. I Lay In Dust Life’s Glory Dead
07. The Good King Will Punish You
