Published Aug 21, 2020Montreal-based four-piece Gulfer have signed to Royal Mountain Records ahead of releasing a new album. The band will release their self-titled, third LP through the label in Canada and Topshelf Records elsewhere on October 16.
Gulfer runs 13 tracks in length and follows 2018's Dog Bless. The band's latest is said to find honest and vulnerable lyricism anchored by "explosive, agile emo" that also draws from grunge and shoegaze.
New song "Forget (Friendly)" arrives alongside today's announcement, and you can watch a video for it below that follows the band from the bar, to the bike shop, to the stage and the supper table.
Vocalist/guitarist Joseph Therriault explains: "'Forget (Friendly)' is about how you deal with developing a crush on someone in the context of a monogamous partnership (especially if it's reciprocated). There are so many things we can't control. The song has no lesson — I'm just as clueless about this as when I wrote the lyrics."
