Diet Cig has announced their upcoming sophomore album Do You Wonder About Me?, which will be out on May 1st via Frenchkiss Records. Along with the record announcement, the duo has shared the lead track “Thriving” – stream below:

On the new single, the duo shared: “‘Thriving’ is a cathartic, campy release of feelings. Its about the duality of absolutely THRIVING without someone but also desperately wanting them to notice you doing so. Inspired by the melodrama of reality TV and musical theater, we wanted the song to bounce back and forth between a lavish personal anthem and the anguish of feeling forever beholden to others opinions.”

Diet Cig has also added new North American and UK tour dates:
