Brian Borcherdt Steps Away From Holy Fuck For New Solo Album
Recorded by long-time friend Jose Contreras of By Divine Right, Coyotes was recently put to tape during one of Holy Fuck’s tour breaks in a living room turned recording space. The album contains little more than guitar and vocals, and as Borcherdt explains, it comes as a way to get back into his old "method of protest.”
"I just wanted to write. That's all I want to do still,” Borcherdt says in his one-sheet. "Now I have a band called Holy Fuck, which keeps me busy as hell. The only problem is that Holy Fuck doesn't have guitar in it, at all. So as you can imagine, I miss my guitar and writing sad songs.
"Last year, while taking a brief break from the road, a friend of mine recorded seven of my recently written songs. For the most part, we kept the first takes and did little else to them, leaving them bare with no drums, no bass, etc., just me and my guitar. It was nice."
In support of the record, Borcherdt has also announced he will be hitting the road and travelling across the country with fellow Canadian folkie Martha Wainwright. Here are Borcherdt’s tour dates, as well as the Coyotes tracklisting:
1. "While I Was Asleep”
2. "Scout Leader”
4. "The Drugs”
5. "Evil Twin”
6. "Means of Escape”
7. "Tiny Mouths”
