WINTERSLEEP ANOUNCE NEW ALBUM, NEW INHERITORS
BAND OFFERS TITLE TRACK FOR FREE DOWNLOAD / U.S. TOUR WITH MATT POND PA BEGINS JUNE 4
Halifax indie rockers Wintersleep have announced the release of their new album, New
Inheritors. Set for a June 1 self-release, this collection of rousing, inspirational rock songs was recorded in
Montreal and mixed in Glasgow with Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Teenage
Fanclub). The end result may be some of most expansive, dynamic, dark and courageous rock music you'll
hear this year. To get fans excited, the band is offering title track, "New Inheritors", for free download at www.wintersleep.com. Beginning June 4 in Philadelphia, PA,
Wintersleep will join Matt Pond PA for a 4-week North American tour.
While the band's lyrics have usually focused on the personal, the songs on New Inheritors lean towards a
bigger worldview. The narrator is a voyeur, commenting on situations rather than being in those situations itself. Moments and memories are alluded to across multiple songs, and an overarching theme of alienation and
despondency come up repeatedly. But make no mistake - this is not a miserable record. From album opener,
"Experience The Jewel" to the closer "Baltic," New Inheritors is an intoxicatingly beautiful album full of
meticulously-crafted rock songs.
New Inheritors is the follow up to the bands critically acclaimed album, Welcome to the Night Sky, which saw them win a Juno Award for "Best New Band," and open for Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and Editors.
