Saratoga Springs, NY-based alternative/grunge rock trio, Candy Ambulance, are set to release their new Spray tomorrow, Friday, February 16th, but guess what? We’re debuting the whole thing today! The six-track recording hearkens back to the ’90s best alt acts while still sounding fresh and innovative. Pre-order your copy here and head below to hear the music, also taking note of the upcoming East Coast and Midwestern U.S tour dates, yo!

Using our prescription to inquire about new music, the band’s representatives begrudgingly asked the threesome what they thought of their new music to which they replied: “Spray is an EP that captures us at our current best. We’re working, always, on getting better at recording, writing and producing the music that we love. We recorded Spray at our house. That’s a lucky thing. We have the means to record ourselves, and other bands (like our friends Asa Morris and The Mess) at home from touring and online sales. It’s, how they say, hashtag f*-ing blessed.”
