Published Feb 17, 2012It's been almost exactly a year since Hey Rosetta! released Seeds, and fans of the orchestral indie rock outfit are about to get another dose of the Juno-nominated East Coast residents in the form of an acoustic EP, tour and music video.
First thing's fist: the EP. Entitled Sing Sing Sessions, it came out digitally this week through Sonic Records and was recorded in Australia's Sing Sing Studios. It features acoustic versions of four Seeds tracks: "Young Glass," "Welcome," "Seventeen," and "Seeds."
As for the tour, the band will be playing shows in North American over the next couple of months before heading to Europe briefly in April. The leg on this continent features a few East Coast Canadian dates, with stops in Halifax, Moncton and Fredericton. The American dates will help to promote the forthcoming U.S. release of Seeds, which will come out via ATO on May 1.
Hey Rosetta! also confirmed in a tweet that they will be performing on an even more high-profile stage: the Juno Awards on April 1.
Lastly, Hey Rosetta! have unveiled a visually impressive animated video for the track "New Sum (New Sommes)," which you can watch below.
