For all the chaos and aggression in Tunic's songs, the Winnipeg trio is haltingly perceptive and emotionally resonant.

Composed singer-guitarist David Schellenberg and drummer Dan Unger, the punk band is responsible for bracingly intense full-lengths about the anxieties and insecurities of daily life, including the 2021 LPs Quitter and Exhaling.

But with their third album Wrong Dream, which is out via Artoffact on April 28, they've written their most introspective and adventurous music yet.

Across nine unpredictable songs, they grapple with integrity, grief, tumultuous relationships, and universal questions that come with trying to do the right thing.

Co-produced by Seth Manchester (The Body, METZ) and stand-in bassist Drew Riekman (Blessed), it's a document of a band pushing themselves as far away from complacency as possible to make something intentional and compelling.

Wrong Dream is a document of trying to right the course, realizing that the decisions you make can pick you up or ruin you.

Its title comes from the fact that you can chase paths that aren't right for you: ones that lead to addiction, despair, and losing yourself.

You'll find hints of post-punk and hardcore but also immersive textures from post-rock and the rhythmic dexterity of math rock.
