Union Duke Return to the 'Golden Days' with New Album

Union Duke Return to the 'Golden Days' with New Album
Two years removed from releasing their Cash & Carry LP, twangy Toronto indie folk outfit Union Duke have revealed the details behind their third full-length record. Titled Golden Days, the band's new collection of tunes arrives on August 5.

Running 13 tracks in length, Golden Days was recorded live off the floor to capture the energy of the band's live performances before being mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Basia Bulat, Timbre Timber). Bringing together both rambling banjo music and the roar of tube amplifiers, the record is said to be inspired by "pain and struggle, lessons learned, and of laughter between friends, tenderness between lovers."

The band have also given listeners a taste of what's to come with leading single "Got You on My Mind," which you can take a listen to below.
 
On top of the album announcement, Union Duke have also mapped out a run of tour dates that will take place in July and August, as well as a handful for later into the fall and winter. You can find the band's complete tour itinerary below the tracklist.
