Timber Timbre Announces New Record, Creep On Creepin’ On, Available 4/5 on Arts & Crafts, And Spring Tour Dates

TIMBER TIMBRE ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD
CREEP ON CREEPIN’ ON
AVAILABLE APRIL 5TH ON ARTS & CRAFTS

PLAYING SELECT U.S. DATES THIS SPRING

Timber Timbre returns with Creep On Creepin’ On.

The follow-up to the band’s 2009 self-titled record, which was named Album of the Year by Toronto’s Eye Weekly and nominated to the long list for the Polaris Music Prize, multi instrumentalists Taylor Kirk, Mika Posen and Simon Trottier come together again on heartrending compositions that engage, transport and challenge.

Creep On Creepin’ On will be released April 5th on Arts & Crafts.

Kirk began the writing of the record two years previous with tracks further assembled during a residency in Sackville, New Brunswick in June of 2010. Produced by the band and recorded at both The Treatment Room with Kees Dekker and inside a converted church studio with Grammy nominee Mark Lawson, the result is Timber Timbre’s most brilliant and robust record to date, a collection of 10 tracks that expands to incorporate rich and varied melodies, affecting lyricism and evocative vintage instrumentation.

From guttural groans on lead track “Bad Ritual” to the eerie doo-wop-inspired pleas of “Lonesome Hunter,” the album is textured and commanding, stirring proof of the unwavering powers of obsession and possession.

And while settings and collaborators continue to change for the band, the guiding inspiration behind the songs has not. “The idea is to make music we love and therefore embrace the risk of sounding like all the music we’ve ever loved, all at once,” Kirk explains.

Timber Timbre will be playing dates in their native Canada this spring, as well as some select U.S. shows. Catch the band that Time Out New York called a “standout act,” which managed to “keep the crowd astonishingly quiet and positively awed.”

PRAISE FOR TIMBER TIMBRE

“Compelling unforgiving-country music, like Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds stripped to a low- watt, high-anxiety power trio … so good I bought this record at the merch table.” – David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“Timber Timbre is a woodsy sort of experience. Kirk’s heavily reverbed vocals and sparse arrangements offer a sense of expanse and wilderness, emotionally and environmentally…a stirring presence. Taylor’s songs aren’t overstated or overly ambitious-they’re spacious and thoughtful. High relief rather than photographic. Tangible.” – Michele Yamamoto, Under The Radar

“Toronto’s Timber Timbre makes trippy, cinematic acoustic music, delivering it with a puzzling smile and an unsettling serenity.” – Brad Wheeler, Globe & Mail

“Timber Timbre packs more chilling moments into its 36 minutes than the entire “Thriller” rack at Suspect Video … Even if his album doesn’t draw its awesome power from a devilish source, it sounds like Timber Timbre at least knows where the bodies are buried.” – Dave Morris, Eye Weekly
