Woodhands announces new album, tour with Junior Boys

Toronto – Woodhands is set to embark on a 17-date tour of Canada and the United States with Junior Boys before returning to the studio to complete the follow-up to 2008’s critically acclaimed debut Heart Attack. The band’s second album, Remorsecapade, is set to be released on Paper Bag Records on January 26th 2010. The band has also recently contributed a remix to label-mate and bloggeshire champion CFCF’s latest EP, The Explorers (feat. Sally Shapiro), released this week on Paper Bag Digital.

Also, check out the band’s City Sonic video posted below where Dan Werb and Paul Banwatt revisit the Don Valley Brickworks site to recount their memories of the “illegal party” that went down with Holy Fuck in 2006. City Sonic is a cross-platform documentary series of short films about extraordinary artists shot in places where their musical lives were transformed. The Woodhands segment premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival’s “TIFF in Concert” program last month.

Since dropping their debut in April 2008, Woodhands has been touring constantly with dates North America, Japan, China, and Europe. Along with their hectic touring schedule, Dan and Paul have also been cranking out remixes and cover tracks (including a version of ‘Electric Avenue’ blessed by Eddy Grant himself) and have been attracting high-level praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, NME and Q Magazine which named Woodhands as one of ‘The Ten Best New Bands On Earth’ in their post-SXSW issue this year.

While Heart Attack appeared on a slew of “Best of 2008” year end lists including “Best Electro Album” from iTunes Canada, their live show has to be seen to be believed: no pre-programmed samples, no laptops, no safety net: just two hyperkinetic, high-energy performers bringing the party as hard as possible, a little different each time.
