Kite Party has long been one of Philadelphia's best-kept secrets. The quintet's debut album, 2011's Baseball Season, was a refreshing blend of emo and echoing post-rock that somehow managed to hover under the radar. Now, the band is poised to become a more widespread concern with Come On Wandering, their fast-approaching sophomore effort.

Due May 6 via Animal Style Records, the new, 11-track LP retains the cosmic, reverberating guitar licks of its predecessor, but the tempo has — for the most part — slowed to a mellow lull. Come On Wandering offers a grand mish-mash of dreamy indie-punk that throws a nod to the Kinsellas and salutes the Smashing Pumpkins. Listen to the entire LP, which is currently available for pre-order, below. Scroll down further for Kite Party's upcoming tour dates alongside Three Man Cannon.
