Young Galaxy | Tour Update and "We Have Everything" MP3

Montreal's Young Galaxy are already rescheduling tour dates in support of their brilliant new album Shapeshifting. The band will now be hitting the road starting in the US with fellow Montreal residients and label-mates Winter Gloves (details below). Young Galaxy's third album will be available from February 8th on Paper Bag Records.

Young Galaxy's new album is unlike anything they have done before. Shapeshifting was recorded in Montreal and then sent away, across the ocean, to one of the world's most acclaimed and secretive producers. For nine months, Dan Lissvik, half of the Swedish duo Studio, curved and refashioned the tracks; he made and remade them. The finished album is a thing of cold reverb, hot drums and synth.
2010 was a busy year for the band as they also saw their last album, Invisible Republic, included on the long-list for the Polaris Music Prize. More recently, one of the album's stand-out tracks, "Destroyer", was nominated for the SOCAN Echo Songwriting Prize alongside songs from The Besnard Lakes, Caribou, Brasstronaut and Crystal Castles. They band has also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, Stars, Twin Shadow and many more.
All Red was Winter Gloves’ sophomore release on Paper Bag Records, a collection of ten songs that the band had been tinkering with on and off-stage during their past year on the road, and brought back to their Montreal studio to record over the last winter. In a return to the roots of the original EP that first introduced Winter Gloves’ poppy mix of gritty bass and synths sound, All Red was produced by the band’s Charles F (lead singer, guitar, synths). The foursome is rounded out with Patrick Sayers on drums, Vincent Chalifour on bass and synths, and Nico Ormiston on guitar and bringing back the glockenspiel that was a well-mentioned highlight on their debut about a girl album.
