True Blue out on September 9th
Western Canadian Tour Dates Starting on September 1st
Just ahead of the September 9th release of their 3rd full-length album, True Blue, Edmonton-based pop band Jesse and the Dandelions are announcing their album pre-order with a hilarious infomercial, premiering now at Beatroute.ca.
Jesse and the Dandelions' True Blue infomercial features the smooth sounds of band leader Jesse Northey, and Paul Blinov and Amy Shostak of the Edmonton improv/comedy duo Gossamer Obsessions. The infomercial is mostly improvised with direction from Dylan Howard who also directed the band's most recent 'No Fun' video.
"Almost all of the scenes in the infomercial are improvised with a few guiding anchor points," explains Jesse. "I thought it would be really fun to do something to promote the album that was in essence non-musical. And Dylan did a fantastic job editing it into a watchable piece."
Look for Jesse and the Dandelions on tour starting September 1st in support of True Blue, more tour dates will be announced soon. Please visit jesseandthedandelions.com for the most up to date tour listings. Jesse and the Dandelions' 3rd album True Blue will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers/streaming services on Friday, September 9th.
