Vancouver roots rockers The Matinée announced they’ll be hitting the road for a handful of Canadian headlining dates in support of their sophomore album “Dancing On Your Grave”.
Celebrating the #1 song on CBCRadio 3’s Top 10 chart this week with “Figure It Out”, the dynamic foursome will visit Calgary, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa and more throughout the month of July.
Heralded as one of the ‘most anticipated releases of 2017’ and recorded over two lengthy sessions at Vancouver’s 604 Studios, “Dancing On Your Grave” was produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, REM, Courtney Love), and is a triumphant culmination of spontaneous creativity, mindful and often therapeutic lyricism and a heart swelling collision of hook-infused rock and earthy roots influenced songs – all written, jammed and recorded on the spot in studio.
Exploring the growth and transformation of the band as a whole, “Dancing On Your Grave” is the perfect distillation of the chemistry between these longtime friends and collaborators.
Having spent over a decade together, they’ve emerged with a sound that’s tighter and more vibrant than ever, and the selected 11 tracks come from over 40 songs that the band brewed up during the recording process.
The Matinée is: Matt Layzell (vocalist), Pete Lemon (drummer), Matt Rose (guitar) and Geoff Petrie (guitar).
