“Sleepwalking” Music Video – and other favourites

Happy New Year everybody! We hope your holiday season was as restful as ours.

We made a video for “Sleepwalking“, the opening track on “I Stand in the Weeds“. Directed and filmed by the very talented Adam Reider at Rail City Media, we will officially launch the full length version on Saturday January 26th at the Edge of the City Live podcast on the No More Radio podcast network.

The event will also include live performances by Bad Weather and Sarah Jane Scouten. Don’t miss out on being a part of this. Full details are available on Facebook, just click here. Until then, enjoy this little preview:

While we’re sharing videos, here are a few others that we’d like you to see. First off, here is us, stranded on the 401 in the middle of a hail storm just outside of Windsor last spring:

Kudos to Andre for having pulling over …

Next up, here’s Kendra Gale from Saint-Andrews New Brunswick with her own take on “I’m Gonna Make Her Mine“. After being momentarily stunned, we came to our senses by verse two, and captured most of this performance at the Red Herring in the summer of 2011:

And lastly, a video that has absolutely nothing to do with us. Here’s a favourite of ours by Lee Mellor. It’s called “Lose“, and this is Trish Robb singing it:

Now go do something productive! We’ll see you all at the video launch on the 26th.

Ten Nights in Ontario

So other than the occasional show here and there in Ottawa and Toronto, we really haven’t spent all that much time in Ontario since we released “I Stand in the Weeds“. I think it’s about time we fix that.

From May 16th to the 26th we’ll be playing almost every night in Peterborough, Ottawa, Windsor, Toronto, Woodstock, Kingston, and a couple of other cities to be named later (or sooner).

The details are up on our Shows page and will remain there throughout the tour, but we’ll post them here for good measure. So without further ado, or much fanfare, here’s our tour schedule:

Ten Nights in Ontario

We’re very excited to be going out on the road again. We’ve been having a lot of fun on our recent road trips to Sherbrooke, Ottawa, and Toronto, and are looking forward to being back in some fantastic venues like the Phog, Mitzi’s Sister, and the Elmdale. We have some pretty amazing supporting acts too, including The Locusts Have No King in Windsor, The Tom Savage Trio in Kingston, Miss Quincy in Ottawa, and in Toronto, a certain little classic country outfit known as The Marshalls

We also can’t wait to take to the stage at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern, where so many of our favourite artists have performed, most notably The United Steel Workers of Montreal, and Bob Log III, to name but a few that come to mind … Oh, and Blue Rodeo.

So there you go. We’re touring through Ontario as of next week! Please let everyone you know in the cities listed above that we’ll be visiting them real soon.

Have a great week everybody!

PS – Last week we played at Hurley’s Irish Pub at an event called “An Evening for Gary Carter“. A lot has been said about it already on Facebook and Twitter, so there really isn’t much more to say. But it must be acknowleged here on our blog. We would like to congratulate Dave Kaufman for organizing such an amazing event. We helped him surpass his goal of $10,000 for the Sarah Cook Fund at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Thank you, Dave, for all of your hard work, and for letting us close the night with Jeremy Taggart of Our Lady Peace playing drums with us. And thank you to everyone who came out and took part in the silent auction and the raffle. It would not have been a success if not for you.
