Toronto — Upon the release of their stunning new album All Red, Montreal’s Winter Gloves will pack up the van for an extensive tour of North American (dates below – western dates will be announced soon). The band’s second studio album will be available from Paper Bag Records on CD, digital download and limited-edition red vinyl on September 7th. The band has also just posted ‘making of’ studio footage which features one of the album’s stand-out tracks “Plastic Slides” . “Plastic Slides” is available for download in its original form along with a new remix of the track from Teen Daze

All Red is Winter Gloves’ sophomore release on Paper Bag Records, a collection of ten songs that the band had been tinkering with on and off-stage during their past year on the road, and brought back to their Montreal studio to record over the past winter. In a return to the roots of the original EP that first introduced Winter Gloves’ poppy mix of gritty bass and synths sound, All Red was produced by the band’s Charles F (lead singer, guitar, synths). The foursome is rounded out with Patrick Sayers on drums, Vincent Chalifour on bass and synths, and Nico Ormiston on guitar and bringing back the glockenspiel that was a well-mentioned highlight on their debut about a girl album.

With only a handful of live shows behind them at the beginning of 2008, Winter Gloves were already receiving invitations to join bands like Tokyo Police Club on a series of sold-out tour dates. Such well-attended shows helped spread what was becoming the wildfire of the earlier, self-released “Let Me Drive” EP. After the Canadian release of their full-length in the Fall of 2008, the band continued on the same foot as things had started with dates alongside Tokyo Police Club and a slot at Toronto’s Virgin Festival before hitting the road across Canada with You Say Party, Thunderheist and Beast. Reactions to the debut album and these shows immediately secured showcase opportunities at International conferences, invitations for further touring and earned spots on “Best of 2008” year end lists including “Best New Artist” from iTunes Canada.
