Toronto — Victoria-based singer-songwriter Northcote is now on the road in support of his brilliant debut album Gather No Dust. The album will be released tomorrow (April 19th) on Black Box. Northcote’s thirteen-date Canadian tour continues in Edmonton tomorrow night at The Haven Social Club. A full list of dates can be found below.

Gather No Dust was tracked in rural Southern Ontario in November 2010 with producer Dan Weston (Attack in Black, Classified, Shad, City and Colour). While staying committed to a minimal and atmospheric approach to writing and recording, Gather No Dust fittingly ventures into new territory both sonically and lyrically.

Northcote is the project of Saskatchewan born singer/songwriter Matt Goud. A unique voice in Canada’s broad musical aesthetic, Goud is no stranger to movement having years of North American touring under his belt in an influential post-hardcore group all beginning while in high school. Since the groups disbanding in November of 2008, Goud followed a number of different personal and musical paths, which lead to the arrival of his debut solo effort, an EP entitled Borrowed Chords, Tired Eyes (Black Box, 2009). With the new EP, Goud took to the road and continued to build his audience across Canada while gaining experience along the way. Touring took many forms, including solo in a two-door car or riding backbench in the overflowing van of a headlining act.

The sentiments of Gather No Dust are vast; highs to lows, here’s to there’s. These themes should come as no surprise, as Goud claims the songwriting inspiration occurred during a year that saw him living in Regina SK, Yellowknife NT, Vancouver BC., and now currently in Victoria BC. Goud is joined by John Jeffery (drums), Tyler Schwindt (Guitar/Bass) and John Gerrard (Bass).
