2013 is setting out to be another great year for FEVERS--the electro-indie-rock band based in Ottawa are currently in the studio working on their debut full length record. It will be released in May 2013, with a single and video preceding it in April. They’ll be playing a lot of shows in support of it, so keep your eyes open for tour date announcements!
Looking back on 2012, we can just imagine what the new year will hold for FEVERS--they covered some serious ground in their first full year as a band! With the launch of their self-produced EP, Passion Is Dead, in October 2011, they saw the world open up to them. They had some great press from critics in Canada, the States, and Europe alike and played Ottawa Bluesfest, Tulip Festival, Capital Pride,JUNOfest, and the Festival de l’Outaouais Émergent. In doing so, they got to share the stage with artists like Plants and Animals, Dirty Projectors, Ariane Moffatt and Hotel Morphée.
The GLA has always wanted to leave listeners with something to think about. With songs that are subtle, yet melodically complex, there is a freshness to The GLA that speaks of immediacy. Sonically significant, full of hooks and layers, they’ve bred an original rock sound driven by dark, emotional lyrics.
The Goodluck Assembly will release a new E.P. in the Spring of 2013. “Demonstrations,” was recorded in the fall of 2012 in Brooklyn, NY. The sessions took place before, during, and after Hurricane Sandy.
