Vancouver, BC - Prince George alt-rock duo The Statistics are excited to announce the release of their brand new single 'Old Habits' with the premiere of the video on Permanent Rain Press. The Statistics will also be hitting the road in support of the new single and video, playing a string of Western Canadian Tour Dates starting in Vancouver on September 29th. See below for full tour listings.
The Statistics are Darby and Erin Yule, a pair of brothers from Prince George, BC, who play Alternative Rock. They released their debut EP Haunts in 2014 and the single 'Jealous Heart' in January of this year. Their new single 'Old Habits' and the previous single 'Jealous Heart' will both be included on a brand new EP set to be released in 2017. 'Old Habits' was recorded partly at Vertical Studios in Vancouver and partly in their own home, and the overall sound is a bit more alt-country than alt-rock.
"'Old Habits' is about two people who just can’t make the timing of their relationship work," explains frontman Darby Yule. "We’ve been describing it as a song for the drives you take when you’ve got a lot your mind. It features the lovely Amy Kirkpatrick on guest vocals. We tried to include a California Sound/Country Rock vibe to the song which is new for the band. All the instruments were recorded by us and a large portion was done in our own home."
Although they are a relatively new band, The Statistics have already achieved considerable feats, including: being nominated for "Best Out of Province Act" at the 2106 Toronto Independent Music Awards, working with Cone McCaslin (Sum 41), playing Canadian Music Week and Crankworx in Whistler, and headlining the Kispiox Music Festival. The duo's upcoming tour is their 3rd time doing a Western Canadian Tour and they've been gaining more fans each time due to their incredible live show. The band is entertaining and hilarious, and The Statistics often generate more energy on stage than bands twice their size!
