Shuyler Jansen Takes New LP on Canadian Tour with Deep Dark Woods

Shuyler Jansen Takes New LP on Canadian Tour with Deep Dark Woods
Later this month, Saskatoon, SK-based songwriter Shuyler Jansen will release Voice from the Lake via Scratch Records. Once the album drops, he will hit the road for a brief Canadian tour.

In early April, Jansen will play a one-off show at his hometown's Vivefest3, an event that also includes performances by Chad VanGaalen, Braids and Woodpigeon. Then, a month later, he will hit the road for seven more shows. Six of these will be in Ontario before the outing wraps up in Montreal on May 9.

Jansen will be joined on tour (and on stage) by Deep Dark Woods. The folk rock outfit also backed the songwriter on Voice from the Lake.

UPDATE: Deep Dark Woods' Lucas Goetz informs us that they in fact will not be playing with Jansen on his Ontario dates. Jansen instead will be doing a solo opening slot during the round of dates.

Look out for more tour dates to be announced in the coming months. Jansen will be making is hoping to make an appearance at NXNE in Toronto in June and will head west later in the summer.

Also, expect the songwriter to release a video for the track "Totally Anonymous" in the coming weeks. A press release says that it will be "a visual homage to Rasputin, Star Wars, SCTV and Tim & Eric." You can hear the song, along with other cuts from Voice from the Lake, over at Jansen's MySpace.
