Toronto's Elliott BROOD start the New Year with Ontario and Quebec tour dates.

Elliott BROOD will be playing a string of Ontario and Quebec dates this month. The seven-date tour will see the band playing in markets that weren't included on their sold-out cross-country trek in support of Days Into Years. The album will be released in the United States on February 28th with live dates being announced next week.
Days Into Years was a regular on year-end lists over the past month. The album received nods from National Post, Quick Before It Melts, and from TSN's Dave Hodge who compiles a list of his favourite music of the year with colleague Jay Onrait. Elliott BROOD also received kudos for their live show from NOW Magazine and were included on CBC Radio's Top 50 Artists of 2011 list. Recently, Elliott BROOD stopped by CBC Radio 1's Q for a three-song session and interview. Listen to the Q podcast here.
Elliott BROOD released Days Into Years in Canada on September 27th on Paper Bag Records. The album was produced by the band and John Critchley at Green Door Studios, Avening Town Hall and Park Side Drive Studios. Download album track 'If I Get Old' here.
Days Into Years is Elliott BROOD’s third full-length recording, the follow-up to 2008’s Polaris Prize short-listed Mountain Meadows. Like its predecessors, including the 2004 debut EP Tin Type and 2006’s Juno-nominated Ambassador, it mines real history to connect songs that are deeply personal in a cinematic, narrative way. Unfolding like a series of movie scenes, it looks to the future by starting with the past. Opening track “Lindsay” invites you into process of revisiting one’s life while cleaning out an old family home. “If I Get Old” daydreams of making it through difficult times, be they in the trenches or a sickbed, and finding a nice place in the country to live out one’s final moments. Days Into Years presents these reflections as a celebration of life, particularly on the perfect summer single “Northern Air”, a love letter both to the rural Ontario landscape and the memory of a departed friend whose spirit now resides there.
