Published Apr 07, 2014It's been 10 years since Abbotsford, BC-bred indie outfit You Say Party first brought out the dancy hits, and the band are about to celebrate the anniversary with a rarities EP dubbed Decennium. The mini-release arrives next Tuesday (April 15).
The group announced the EP today (April 7) and explained in a statement that the four tracks found on Decennium "have been sitting on the shelves," with the anniversary being as good of time as any to dust off the tracks for a proper release.
Included on the EP are a demo version of their Hit the Floor! track "The Gap (Between the Rich and the Poor)," as well as an early take of Lose All Time's "Monster," a cover of fellow Abby band Progressive Thinker's "You Are What We Like to Eat" and a remix of "Like I Give a Care."
"Ten years ago, You Say Party! We Say Die! played our very first show in a small church basement in Abbotsford, with friends Fun 100, the Hand and the All Purpose Voltage Heroes," the band said in a statement. "It marked the beginning of something we never would have imagined would go so far, and we're so happy to be still playing music together a decade later."
Having issued a few songs last year, following a hiatus, You Say Party add that they've "been in and out of the studio working on new material." Concrete plans for these tracks are expected be revealed later on this year.
