Pre-order, pre-add, and pre-save the album, here:
From Chicago, Wingtips is the duo of Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon. With an impeccable sound and look, the band creates dark anthems that blend synth-driven danceability and yearning romanticism, reminiscent of The Cure, early Ministry, and more.
A recent Revolver Magazine write-up compares Wingtips to Drab Majesty and hails the band as a "devastating twosome." Post-Punk.com calls them "immensely talented... a hybrid of post-punk and dark synth-pop – as if The Cure and Depeche Mode circa 1983 were to come together in a studio in Berlin."
Wingtips embark on an extensive North American tour in August, including slots on Cold Waves VIII in Chicago, Absolution Festival in Tampa, and much more.
