Madic House Concert Tour – Jesse Speed

May 13, 2016

DateTourPoster

We’re super excited to announce Jesse Speed‘s cross-canada summer tour!

Short bio: “Behind the scenes of today’s hyper-social conventions, Jesse is a lone wolf. Subtly enigmatic, on stage he is intriguingly comfortable yet remains strikingly honest. His lyrics may sound bleak yet are a liberating display of the archetypes in modern life. He’s been compared to Bonnie Prince Billy, Iron and Wine and Father John Misty. Jesse is based in Montreal and is originally form the rustic South-West of Quebec.”

Facebook events and ticket details are coming soon…

PRE-ORDER GOODBYE SOMETHING HERE AND RECEIVE INSTANT DOWNLOAD FOR “WEARING IT”

Halifax’s Walrus channel their inner psychedelia with songs that range from trance to surf. Exclaim! writes that “the band somehow mix gentle, Brian Wilson vocal melodies and orchestrations with out-of-the-blue punk thrash parts that keep listeners guessing. The high, winsome vocals and chiming 12-string Rickenbacker certainly conjured late ’60s cloudy folk-pop, but the rest of the band infused the songs with sharp edges.” Their music will adhere to all levels of inebriation or consciousness. Walrus takes you swiftly into a dream you’ll find yourself never wanting to wake up from.

Today, The band is pleased to announce that they have signed with Dan Mangan’s Madic Records to release their latest EP, Goodbye Something, due April 29 on cassette and digital download. Get a look at the inner-psyche of Walrus with new video for lead single “Wearing It”. Pre-orders of Goodbye Something will receive an instant download of the single.

Recorded with Charles Austin and Franc Lopes at Echo Chamber in Halifax, “the song is about being trapped or caught up in the cycle of doing the same things all the time…but also being content with that, and then also feeling that it’s wearing thin, too,” says the band.

Currently on tour with Wintersleep, Walrus will continue on across Canada on a run of dates throughout April and May. Full tour dates can be found below with more stops to be added soon. True DIYers, throughout the last two years Walrus has played over 200 shows in clubs, dive bars, garages, and houses in the U.S. and Canada with the likes of July Talk, Will Butler, Tokyo Police Club, Buck 65, and Zeus.
