Published May 26, 2015Last year, ear-worming Vancouver Island post-punk outfit Fountain released a self-titled album on cassette. Now, they're ready to follow it up with another tape called — what else? — Fountain 2. It's out in June and will be supported with a Western Canadian tour.
The 10 tracks were recorded over a one-year span using a reel-to-reel tape machine. According to a press release, the album "polishes the frenetic live sound captured on the band's first release, Fountain, while delving deeper into the murky depths of analog studio recording."
The digital release will be on June 2, with the cassette to follow on June 18. After that, Fountain will be promoting their brand of melodically-twisted angular rock with gigs throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. All told, the tour will consist of 10 appearances in June and July, including festival stops at Calgary's Sled Island and Vancouver's Music Waste.
