1971 "Anxiety (In the Depths of Northwestern Ontario)" (video)
Published Nov 20, 2017Winnipeg-based post-punks 1971 delivered their Burning Bridges Before They're Crossed EP in 2016, before their bassist, founding member and friend Cameron Glen Cranston passed away unexpectedly earlier this year. Now, the remaining group are paying homage to their late pal's memory.
In the wake of Cranston's passing, the band have decided not to continue, but will be releasing their final two recordings with the original members as a cassette single. It's titled No Matter Where You Go, There You Are and it will arrive December 1 via Uncarved Block.
Additionally, "Anxiety" has been treated to a music video. The clip captures footage of the bandmates cruising down highways, hiking through forests and basking in the glory of Canadian nature (and beer).
"'Anxiety' was written for Cam in 2016 during a really difficult period while Cam was still around," the band tell Exclaim! "We're glad we have 'his' song, even though it's hard to listen to sometimes."
Watch the touching tribute below. The new single is available to order here.
