Published Apr 06, 2017Montreal post-punk outfit Smokes are ready to set Eastern Canada ablaze on a string of upcoming tour dates, but before they embark on the two-week April jaunt, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive listen to a brand new single from the band.
The group will be hitting the road alongside Look Vibrant, kicking off the joint tour dates in Ottawa on April 13. From there, they'll move through Montreal, Peterborough and London, before making a stop at Canadian Music Week in Toronto on April 19 (as part of an Exclaim!-presented showcase at the Baby G). From there, the tour will move through Quebec City, Fredericton and finally come to a close in Sackville, NB, on April 22.
To get an idea of the group's sound ahead of their live shows, you can stream a brand new single titled "4souls" right now. It's a smouldering number that blends bandleader Nick Maas's ominous baritone vocals with throbbing bass, screeching guitars and frantic percussion, crafting a delightfully unpredictable piece of dark "weirdo pop."
