Published Jul 25, 2012Rah Rah previously promised that their "Little Poems"/"I Could Tell You I'm Sorry" seven-inch was a primer for the new full-length, and sure enough, the Regina, SK-based pop rock band have now detailed their latest LP, The Poet's Dead. It will arrive digitally on October 2 and physically on October 23 via Hidden Pony Records.
The collection was helmed by the production team of Gus Van Go and Werner F (the Stills, Hollerado, Priestess). According to a press release, this "fine-tuned" album "showcases some of the finest songwriting from the band and the strongest collective step forward to date."
Multi-instrumentalist and occasional singer Erin Passmore said in a statement, "Recording with Gus and Werner was one of the most rewarding challenges I've ever been a part of. They understood how and when exactly to push us and I'm so proud of what we've been able to create with their help and guidance."
At the bottom of the page, you can watch a video teaser for the album and hear the crunchy opening track "Art & A Wife," which finds the band at their catchiest and most Neil Young-esque (not coincidentally, the song name checks Crazy Horse).
