since we last met our heroes, they have traversed the country on white horses made of rock and roll, faced the mythical tomcat combat, were brutalized by bloodsport across three provinces, got smothered in hugs, and spent the intervening time brushing up on their latin.

but the time has come for our lionhearted adventurers to shed these mortal chains: thursday night, the slate pacific shall become immortal! come witness this spectacular event, 7:30 at officer’s square for no charge.

in other news, the slate pacific have begun work on their next epic, currently untitled. stay tuned for more news…

thanks to bloodsport for an excellent three-day run. they are the future.

SHARE Announce Tour Dates and New Weekly Video Releases

In support of their new album and upcoming tour dates, Share will be releasing one video a week for every song on ‘Slumping In Your Murals,’ which hit stores on August 4th. This week’s video for Horse & Rider features Jason MacIsaac of the Heavy Blinkers + his cat on piano. Here’s a note from Andrew:

Friends are important in life. Talented, funny, generous, genius friends are priceless. Jason MacIsaac is just such a friend. He lent us his talent one afternoon in Halifax. In his Halifax apartment, accompanied by his cat, we made a few versions of this video and kept this take because it was the sloppiest and most amusing. Whether you like Felines or Ornette Coleman you can appreciate a cat walking on a piano.

Please begin bombarding Jason Michael MacIsaac with email requests demanding that he release the new Heavy blinkers album, Health. It\’s Brilliant, and the world has waited long enough.

Watch all the videos at http://www.youtube.com/forwardmusictube and check back every Tuesday for a newbie.

“Tastefully compelling, Share stand tall on this wondrous new record.” Vish Khanna – Exclaim!

“Share has settled nicely into its place as a roots pop band with a cohesive mature sound. Produced by Dan Ledwell in a PEI cabin, the fresh air and rural atmosphere has infused the album with a haunting, life-slowed-down ambiance. Pedestrian boasted a quirky, lovely electro duet with Catherine MacLellan; this time around, a quietly intimate, almost sad, pairing with Jenn Grant on “Maybe Always.” Songs like “Horse and Rider” and “Awake at Dawn” are cautionary tales, but “Penmanship” soars like a classic-in-the-making ballad.” Sue Carter Flinn – The Coast
