Second single off the upcoming album coming up...

"Good Try"

This one features some heavy distorted clav and a big Juno-106 solo.

There's this little video of me tracking clav for the tune last November at Vancouver's Fader Mountain Sound.

Spotify users can pre-save the song here before Friday. (This would be sick if anyone does use Spotify, as it would up our chances of getting placed on playlists and such. Thanks, team!)

See you then! rawk

Out in the world!!!

Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music... and wherever else. If it's not available through your preferred digital musical retailer yet, please be patient. smile

Hope everyone likes it! Got the clav all dirty and the Juno lead all hot and zippy! keys

Got added to a big Spotify Rock playlist yesterday! "Rock Your Block"

Kinda funny for me to be on a playlist with Disturbed, Godsmack, Good Charlotte, and others. But very happy about it! There are over 78K subscribers, so hopefully we get a few extra spins!

(I should mention that we are the very last song and you'll have to scroll, scroll, scroll... grin )

Yeah like it Eric. Very "riffy". Is that a word? Dunno.

Very engaging and energetic. And your contributions are EXCELLENT. If this tune were a horse, it would buck less competent riders than you guys, but you rein it in and ride it with great elan.

Thanks very much for the kind word, Dan and PC. Hope to be out in your neck of the woods around a year from now, after the album has come out and we've juiced the Western Canada summer festivals for what we can. laugh rawk

We just launched a little contest for a limited-edition crewneck sweatshirt. Save the song on Spotify and be entered to win! You can also get bonus entries by sharing our contest post on Facebook.

P.S. Apologies for those of you who aren't on Spotify and have to hear me blab on about it. I know it's terrible, but it's a necessary evil for any band nowadays.

That is some nasty, filthy clav stuff, man. And a nice drop at the end of the synth solo. I really dig the tune. Thanks for sharing!

I did a little play through video of the synth solo from this track... but on my melodica, in my hotel room. laugh
