Nova Scotia’s Wintersleep will join Frightened Rabbit on tour this Spring! Kicking off March 29, the 13-stop trek will make stops in Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, Toronto, Nashville and more. In celebration, Wintersleep is giving away a free download of the “Permanent Sigh,” a track from their latest album Hello Hum which Magnet declared “gorgeous and evocative.”
Recorded during the summer of 2011, Hello Hum was released last summer via Roll Call Records. Co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips) and Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai), it has received accolades ranging from Paste Magazine and MTV Hive to MSN for its infectious blend of energetic, upbeat tracks and soft, subdued ballads that showcase the band’s versatility. The album is available via iTunes and all digital retailers.
Wintersleep’s live performance finds the band taking on new and old favorites alike with a palpable energy from beginning to end. The band has already shared stages with acts like Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam, and Broken Social Scene, and performed live on The Late Show With David Letterman in support of their last release. Their 2007 release, Welcome To The Night Sky, earned the band a Juno Award.
