Published Nov 14, 2008Following the recent release of their debut full-length Moody Motorcycle, super duo Human Highway have announced their first-ever Canadian live dates. This December, the new project fronted by Islands Nick Thorburn and Jim Guthrie (also of Royal City/Playstation fame) will hit up a handful of East coast towns, including Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Guelph.
And in a way, it only makes sense that Human Highway are now hitting the road; after all, thats where the band was conceived. "For me, Human Highway started in a hotel room on a U.S. tour with Islands, Guthrie said in a statement. "Nick had this rad song called 'My Beach' and asked me if I wanted to help him record it. He played and sang at the same time and let me be for a bit to do harmonies.
Being the side project that it is, Human Highway havent confirmed if they will continue with the project after the tour but, as Guthrie recently told Exclaim!, they havent ruled it out either. "I think well do it again, Guthrie said. "It would be a bit of a similar thing or we wont plan it too much.
"I like things to be a bit more spontaneous, or I dont like things to look like theyre too laid out for me. I get depressed when I feel like its, Well do a record, then well do a tour. Were keeping it really loose and up in the air and I like it like that.
Here are Human Highways upcoming tour dates:
12/14 Ottawa, ON - Mavericks
12/15 Montreal, QC - Il Motore
12/16 Toronto, ON - Tranzac Club
12/17 Guelph, ON - E-Bar. 41
