Published Jul 05, 2011Late last year, Kingston, ON indie rockers PS I Love You pummelled our eardrums with the release of their solid debut album Meet Me at the Muster Station. The well-received record meant a larger fanbase than they had previously enjoyed, leaving many newfound fans curious about the band's earlier demos and singles.
Thankfully, those recordings will be compiled on a new singles and rarities compilation called Figure It Out. The record features PS I Love You's earliest recordings, including previous versions of Muster Station tracks "Facelove" and "Scattered," alongside their Diamond Rings collaboration "Leftovers" and covers of Madonna's "Where's the Party" and Rush's "Subdivisions."
Figure It Out will be available on August 30 via Paper Bag Records. PS I Love You's cover of "Where's the Party" can be heard here.
As if that weren't enough, PS I Love You will embark on an enormous North American tour that will bring them all over the continent, including many dates throughout Canada. The full schedule is available below.

1. "Subtle And Majestic"

3. "Scattered" (early version)
