Imaginary Cities, the powerful band from Winnipeg, MB has announced their new – and sadly, last for the foreseeable future – EP Leftovers, which is out August 12th. . The band had been on an hiatus since the ever busy Rusty Matyas threw even more things into his schedule by producing records, joining big bands as a touring member – he just played in a Weakerthans reuion – and pursuing a degree in musical therapy.
Now, the Leftovers EP is just a break before an even longer indefinite hiatus album. The songs on it are unused cuts from their sophomore album Fall of Romance (2013). They left us with this tweet:
This is our way of saying thank you and farewell (for now). More tunes to come! https://t.co/IK1l6GCVTs
