THE BESNARD LAKES return to the States in July, to release new 12" single

The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes are returning to the United States in July, four months after their last U.S. tour, and having just returned from their first European tour. Their July tour will hit cities they didn't get to perform in last time, like New York, Boston and Washington D.C.

Tour dates available HERE.

Also, in the works and set for a September 11 release is a new 12-inch by the Besnard Lakes, called Casino Nanaimo. Side A is "Casino Nanaimo", a place where repetitive sound and lights engulf addicted gamblers all vying for space on the eternal wheel of fortune. And then there is side B, "Devastation (alternate version)", the unedited and original straight-to-two-track nine-minute version, recorded live-off-the-floor at Breakglass Studios.

Earlier this year, the Besnard Lakes released a full-length album on Jagjaguwar, called The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, that quickly made it onto numerous and budding best-albums-of-the-year short-lists by a whole range of music-listening pedigree -- critics, casual and not-so-casual rock listeners, garden variety pop fans, and headphone junkies.

MP3 of "And You Lied To Me": HERE.
