Published Jun 26, 2014Despite Octoberman's autumnal moniker, it's turning out to be a very busy summer for songwriter Marc Morrissette and company. With the album What More What More due out on August 19 through Ishmalia Records, the Toronto-based project has shared a new track and mapped out a Canadian tour.
Following a Toronto show on July 24 at the Piston, Octoberman will take nearly a month off before launching the tour in Guelph on August 21. From there, Morrissette and his band will play a handful of Ontario shows, gradually heading east for a few Maritime dates.
All told, there are nine shows on the schedule. Check out the dates below.
Scroll past that to hear "Dogwalk" from What More What More. It's raw, distortion-fuelled rocker that recalls Dinosaur Jr.'s droopy-eyed bleariness.
