Wheat is working on a new album. In the meantime, the band plans to release three singles.

first up:
there’s unusual vocalization and arrangement on the techno-infused “The Used to B in Love Blues”
“House of Kiss” simultaneously comforts and charges

from Wheat’s press release:
Wheat will release 3 limited edition CD singles. Each single will feature 2 new tracks, exclusive artwork hand-screened by the band, full liner notes and free downloads. Subsequent months will have a new single, each with two additional tracks. This project will culminate in a yet-untitled, limited edition CD along with other exclusive downloads. The single can be purchased now through the band’s website and on October 10, at a music store near you.
