David Gedge, singer-guitarist and sole constant member of the Wedding Present, has been making records about romantic anxiety and infidelity for 27 years, which means that the band has lasted longer than an awful lot of marriages. On Tuesday the quartet will play their third album, Seamonsters, which is now old enough to drink, in its entirety at the Double Door.

While Steve Albini's recording made the guitars on Seamonsters sound massive, the amorous scenarios that Gedge described in songs like "Heather" and "Fleshworld" would make anyone feel small. That combination of thrilling sonics and emotional vulnerability still works on Valentina, the combo's new record. Expect it to be well represented amongst the other 40 minutes of music promised by the tour announcement on the Wedding Present's website.
