Miracle Fortress Announces North American Tour
with Junior Boys, Debuts Pantha du Prince Remix

“Part experimental-ambient and part 80s pop, ‘Was I the Wave?’ is all massive synth-scapes littered with electro beats, and Van Pelt’s dreamy wail towering above.”  – NYLON 
“gorgeous, overblown, half-crazy…You could dance all night to this.” – Said the Gramophone

Secret City Records

Montreal producer Miracle Fortress (aka Graham Van Pelt) has announced a North American tour withJunior Boys in support of his anticipated sophomore album, Was I The Wave? out May 17th on Secret City Records (Diamond Rings, Plants and Animals)These shows follow his Canadian tour with Shad in May, and will include stops in Toronto, New York, Nashville and Chicago.

Acting as composer, arranger, producer, and engineer, Van Pelt here shows more of an electronic side than on his 2007 Polaris Prize-nominated debut Five Roses, which was a fan and industry favorite, gaining critical acclaim from SPIN, Paper, XLR8R and KEXP among others. Was I The Wave? expresses themes of alienation, anonymity, and the desire for intimacy, with the first side keeping a deliberately crowded atmosphere, and the second side more open and personal. In support of his upcoming release, Miracle Fortress has released a Pantha du Prince remix of first single “Raw Spectacle” for free download.
