2017 has been good to yer mums so far. Checked a few things off the to-do/bucket list, including:
- Completing East Coast, Quebec & Ontario tours, playing with pals like Smokes, Mushy Gushy, No Aloha, Partner, Jon Mckiel, Cousins, La Fete, etc. <3 <3 <3
- Being featured on the Pentagon Black Compilation, a national comp put together by the smarties in the Famines. We covered Construction & Destruction’s song “The Oracle”.
- Teaching Owen Steel how to ROCK \m/ \m/ We were Owen’s backing band for 3 special shows at Quality Block Party, Paddlefest, and Lawnya Vawnya.
- Going to Newfoundland (for Lawnya Vawnya)! What a fantastic time. We played 4 SGs, ate seal meat, saw an iceberg, played dope shows, and met lots of cool people and cats.
- Doing a small tour with FET.NAT (Hull, Quebec). What a dope band, what dope dudes, and what a dope time. We miss them.
We’re pretty lucky to get to have so much fun, but the fun certainly doesn’t stop there. Coming up next we’ll be:
- recording a new full-length at Monopolized Studios. With Corey at the helm, and Nick Cobham and Kyle Cunjak as skipper and first mate, we’re pretty sure it’s going to be the wackiest album we’ve ever made.
- touring back to Ontario, this time for a run of shows including a birthday show for Penny at the Horseshoe (Toronto) and playing the Pentagon Black show at Ottawa Explosion. Other stops include Montreal (Fringe x POP x Passovah), Hamilton (the Casbah), and Montreal (Bar Le Ritz).
- going to see our friends in La Fete play with Deerhoof in Quebec City!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wow.
- flying out to Sled Island to play the POP Montreal showcase (with our LAPS pals!), and a Sloth Records in-store show.
Check our ‘shows’ page to see the other stuff we’re cooking up, lots of things to keep us busy and happy. Hope you can say the same!
ps: A few albums we’ve been listening to – Noli Timere (Construction & Destruction), Gaoler (FET.NAT), Dynasty House (Hooded Fang), Citizen’s Ban(ne)d Radio (WHOOP-Szo), John Prine (John Prine)
