Published Jan 14, 2011Newfoundland indie folksters Hey Rosetta! recently caught our attention with the announcement that Seeds, their first album since 2008's Into Your Lungs (And Around to Your Heart and on Through Your Blood), would be dropping on February 15 via Sonic Records. Now, they have sweetened the deal by announcing a comprehensive cross-Canada tour.
The run of shows kicks off the day after the album's release with a concert in Halifax. From there, the group will travel across our fine country, hitting up stops in New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. Along the way, they will also dip into the United States for shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Seeds was produced with Belle and Sebastian/Mogwai producer Tony Doogan. In a press release, songwriter Tim Baker said, "Tony was really incredible at getting all the sounds and tones we'd dreamt up. He's an amazing engineer and for all his Scottish bluster and pop-rock dogma, he is very sensitive, patient, and a gifted producer."
