Goodbye Tacos, Hello Beemster

Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows and made our North American tour as cool as it was. Special thanks to The Cave Singers for many great nights...and to Mexican food...

We're heading across the pond soon, again with Ashley and Ryan in tow as our band. Europe, ready your stocks of cheese. Check the shows section for dates.

Heading Out

We're getting in the van in a couple of days to begin our largest tour yet of Canada and the US. Five weeks! Joining Amber and Josh in the band as before will be the inimitable duo of Ashley Webber on vocals and bass and Ryan Peters on drums and guitar. We'll be playing many of these shows with our good friends The Cave Singers, who just put out a fantastic new album, Welcome Joy. Hope to see all of our friends new and old out there. 

Last week we celebrated the release of Infinite Light here in Vancouver at The Biltmore. It ruled! I'd like to thank Colin Mckill and Cris Derkson for joining us and filling out the ranks with some string action. Also big ups to Lost Lovers Brigade for playing with us (another Vancouver gem...check 'em out) and Sipreano for keeping the people dancing into the night. And all of  you who came out!

You all made the good times rolllll...

Until next time...we shall be hitting the road again in September!

New Album and Touring!

Our new album, Infinite Light, is now done and will be released on the Jagjgauwar label in August.

In the meantime, we're going to be doing a bunch of shows in May across Canada and the US. We're very excited to be playing several dates with Bonnie Prince Billy out east on this tour, and new friends Cotton Jones for a bunch of dates that will sweep us back westward. Check the shows section for updates!

See you soon,
