Luke Doucet Gears Up for Steel City Trawler
As the title suggests, the album was inspired by Hamilton, ON. According to a press release, "From start to finish the album is Luke's idea of a rock and roll record, pure and simple. "This means "atmospheric rock ballads, Manchester-esque melancholy, tender revelations and even more tender accusations."
Those looking for more of Doucet's vivid lyrical style will find it in "'Thinking People,' an homage to blue collars, 'The Ballad of Ian Curtis,' an examination of suicide and creative legacy, and 'Dusted,' which takes direct aim at metaphysical answers to earth-bound questions."
Like Blood's Too Rich, the album will released under the name Luke Doucet and the White Falcon. See a trailer for the album embedded below. It includes some impressive comic book interpretations of lyrics from the album, illustrated by David Collier.
The album was produced by Sloan drummer Andrew Scott. It will be issued in the U.S. a month after the Canadian release, on September 21. Take a listen to the album's first single, "The Ballad of Ian Curtis," over at Doucet's MySpace.
