Royal Canoe, the extraordinary band from Winnipeg, released the vibrant album Something Got Lost Between Here And The Orbit less than a week ago. The record, the first in three years, has been praised for its colorful sounds, experimental textures and full-on groove. Now, the band is taking their new sounds to the road.

“We spent the better part of the last two years holed up in our little studio space developing the ideas for this record, exploring and indulging every possible angle of failure, wrestling with the absurd”, reads a statement about the new album on their Facebook page. “It was the most fulfilling, difficult and inspiring period all at once. What an absolute honour it was to work with Ben Allen, John Paul Peters, Andy Rudolph, Joe Lambert and all of the other wonderful humans without whom this record would never have happened”.

The six-piece is well known for their vibrant live shows, and if there’s anything we’ve learned from Something Got Lost Between Here And The Orbit, is that Royal Canoe can always get more brilliant.
