As revealed earlier in the summer, the group's upcoming album was tracked at Revolution Recording in Toronto with producer Joe Dunphy (Skydiggers, By Divine Right, Elliott Brood). The album is said to be split into two five-song sections representing "day" and "night," and features guest appearances from Rush's Alex Lifeson and the Rheostatics' Michael Phillip Wojewoda, among others.
Beneath the tour dates you'll find a live video of the album's previously premiered single, "Leave Someone," which presents a fuzz-flecked melody and the intricate, intertwining duet between the group's Will Whitwham and Amanda Balsys.
