Dany Laj and the Looks Unveil New Album 'Alive & Kicking'
Two years on from delivering Word on the Street, Montreal's Dany Laj and the Looks are gearing up for a spirited return to recording and the road this year. Laj and company will release their fourth full-length Alive & Kicking next month.

Ten tracks in length, Alive & Kicking was recorded in Montreal and produced by Laj himself. A press release promises the group's "signature power-pop hooks" will be present, particularly on first single "Sweet Pretender." The track will arrive on a 7-inch next month on February 17, released through Some Call It Pop.

Alive & Kicking also arrives February 17 digitally and on CD through Some Call It Pop, while a vinyl edition will arrive in late spring through Record Centre Records.

Along with the album announcement, Laj has plotted a North American tour that is set to kick off in February. Starting in Sudbury, the band will make their way through Canada and the United States over the course of March and April. More dates are also to be announced.
