Ontario Tour with Great Bloomers

Well, well, it has been too, too long. If you’ve been watching the tourdates page you’ll know that our Ontario run with Great Bloomers started last night in Guelph, and what a time we had. Tonight we shall lay waste to Toronto’s Garrison, and Facebook tells us that many of you already plan to be there. Good show. Folks in other Ontario cities, please take a gander at those dates and come see us when we come through. And definitely make it your plan to catch Great Bloomers while you’re at it.

We’ll leave you for now with this sweet pic:

Shows, shots, and tour

Hey now, it’s been a while. We’ve been playing, and also relaxing some, and getting prepped for some big stuff in the Fall. But first…

Last Thursday we were at the Horseshoe opening up for our pals in Flash Lightnin for their record release. It was a sweet time, especially because our old buddy Rich Knox is their brand new drummer and killed it. Adam and I (Aaron) played with Rich in Dan Griffin & The Regrets for quite a while.

We also had occasion at the show to meet Catherine, Rachel and Amanda, the fine individuals responsible for the most awesome blog Buying Shots For Bands. This resulted in the following debauchery (Adam is hiding behind Pete, and our pal Mike is in there with us):

You probably want to hit Buying Shots For Bands cause they seem to get to a lot of fun shows and consequently do shots with a number of fun bands. Great pics too! Fun times

Anyhow, we’re getting geared up to head all across this fine country in the Fall and will have a tour announcement for you in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Also, dudes, if you’re reading this and you don’t yet like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, get on it, wouldja?

And join our mailing list while you’re at it! It comes with free downloads and you’ll never miss us if we’re coming through your town! You can do so on the front page of the site, on the right hand side.

Hope everybody’s good, we’ll talk to you in a little bit about that Fall tour! Check out some more shots from the Horseshoe show below:

New live videos at Southern Souls – new songs!

Just wanted to send the word out that we’ve completed a little live video special with our pal Mitch Fillion who single-handedly runs the unbelievable website Southern Souls. We did things a little differently on all fronts – a traditional music video is usually lip-synced, but we played live. And most of Mitch’s videos are acoustic in nature, with the band in different or unusual locations. We got the unusual location part down – we filmed in a warehouse in Scarborough, Ontario that houses Coll Audio, one of Canada’s largest provider of backline equipment to touring acts. We nixed the acoustic aspect, though, and went full electric, running everything to multitrack. Doug Smith was our location engineer, Brian Wirth mixed the audio after the fact, and Mitch himself filmed the whole thing with a single HD camera. We’re really pleased with the results and hope you are too. We even threw two newer songs into the mix, and they are first up. Here they be:

Part 1: The Great Northwest/Smoothwater

Horseshoe cancellation

Folks, we’re so sorry, but we’re not gonna be able to play Tuesday night at the Horseshoe. For those of you who were out Saturday night at Lee’s Palace, you heard how Cam was struggling with his voice…there’s just no way he’s gonna have it back by Tuesday, and there’s no way we’d wanna play without him being able to sing for you. We’re super bummed because our record is finally out on Tuesday and it was gonna be a bit of an unofficial CD release, but that’ll just have to wait until next time…

…which incidentally, is Saturday April 10 at Lee’s Palace, with our pals The Spades! They’re releasing their new disc on Tuesday as well so it’s only fitting that we join them on that bill. Wicked band and good buds of ours. We really hope to see you then, Torontonians! In the meantime, we’ll be back in Peterborough, Ottawa, Montreal, Kingston, Windsor and Brantford over the next few weeks.

See you out on the road…

(the) Huron (boys)

The LP’s are here! Also new Feb/March dates – Hammer, Brantford, Montreal, Peterborough, Ottawa, Toronto

So our LP’s arrive last week, and I must say they’re looking sharp…we went a little fancy and got the 180 gram records, and put in a little extra photo collage that’s not in the CD version. If you’re a vinyl junkie like me you’ll wanna pick one up. I’ll admit I’ve been sitting around the house listening to it here and there because it sounds so good. Please excuse the crude nature of this Blackberry photograph:

right arm, eh

right arm, eh

Also wanted to keep you informed of some new dates we’ve added…in short order you’ll be able to see all of our upcoming dates on the site here, but in the meantime lemme lay them out for you:

Friday February 26 at This Ain’t Hollywood, Hamilton (CFMU Fundraiser)
Saturday February 27 at Divan Orange, Montreal (w Hollerado)
Friday March 12 at Silver Dollar, Toronto (CMW)
Saturday March 13 at Two Doors Down, Brantford (w Ascot Royals)
Thursday March 18 at Montreal House, Peterborough (w Cuff the Duke)
Friday March 19 at Maverick’s, Ottawa (w Cuff the Duke)
Saturday March 20 at Lee’s Palace, Toronto (w Cuff the Duke)

…and of course I should mention that we’re still going to be at the Dakota in Toronto every Wednesday until the end of February. It’s been an awesome residency, we’ve had so much fun.

Now, shortly after all of that comes the moment we’ve all been waiting for – our record will be coming out officially on March 23, thanks to our hombres at Latent, in partnership with the fine people at Fontana North Distribution. We’ll waste no time hitting the road again to convey the rock unto the people of Canada – watch this space for the announcement of a whole slew of Spring dates in the next couple weeks. We’re coming for you, Ontario. All of you.

I’d better go start packing my gear for Dakota tonight…I will leave you with a couple videos from our residency there, shot by Dirk Fimbob (his real name, I assure you).

Hope this works…here we are doing King & Country

Also Corktown

And for good measure, here we are during Ian’s set doing the Grand Funk Railroad tune Sin’s A Good Man’s Brother

Happy Endings do Grand Funk

Thanks for reading..

Happy New Year! New Dakota dates and other exciting details…

Hope everybody had a relaxing holiday season…we took some time in the Huron camp to get away from seeing each others’ faces for a couple weeks. I must say it’s been a long time since I went three weeks without strapping an electric guitar to my body (though I did take some time to sit at the steel, and picked up my acoustic guitar for a change),  so when we reconvened this week to rehearse it was a lot of fun.  We even bashed out a fun cover to add to the Dakota sets this time around.

Speaking of which, we’re back at the Dakota Tavern on Wednesdays in January and February, playing our own set and also backing our pal Sir Ian. You probably already know that Ian produced our record (which you should be currently hearing from the widget at right -> and passing along to every living soul you know), but that’s really a drop in the bucket compared to all the other cool shit he’s done. His record Happy Endings is awesome and these Dakota nights have been a real treat. The four of us in Huron end up on stage for almost three hours each night, the rock just doesn’t stop. We’re really happy that the turnouts were so good in November and we’re looking forward to eight more weeks of awesome.

As for other exciting details…there are none fit for print at this time. Soon, I promise.
