For Immediate Release:
August 7, 2015
(Vancouver, BC) - GOLD & SHADOW, a four-piece art rock group from Nanaimo, BC, are excited to announce the release of their debut full-length album 'TORCH' on Friday, September 4th and the premiere of their video for 'Half Moon' on Exclaim.ca today! Watch the video here. GOLD & SHADOW are also hitting the road for a string of Western Canadian dates, starting on Vancouver Island on September 9th in Parksville. Full tour schedule is listed below.
GOLD & SHADOW has a wild, passionate sound that will capture your heart and mind. Their vigorous and organic approach to music is a perfect companion for the wild, oceanic landscapes of their Vancouver Island home, and a testament to the hope, beauty, and inspiration found therein. With a penchant for creative, soaring melodies, they are intent on creating a dynamic, tuneful response to the natural wonders of the Island area. Influenced by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Bon Iver, GOLD & SHADOW also shares many of the same sonic ambitions as Vancouver’s We Are The City, Saskatoon’s Close Talker, and Victoria’s ZERBIN.
'TORCH' is GOLD & SHADOW's debut release. Their music has previously been included on compilations such as “All Together Now”, a 2012 Seva Canada charity album featuring Canadian artists such as the Great Lake Swimmers, and they have also proudly shared stage with diverse Canadian talent ranging from PEAK Performance Project finalists We Are The City, Jordan Klassen, Vince Vaccaro, and Towers and Trees, to groups such as ZERBIN and Paper Lions. It's been a wild ride so far for GOLD & SHADOW and the band is looking forward to the release of 'TORCH'.
"We're excited to finally release the record, and get it out there into people's ears," singer Dane Letourneau explains. "We're also looking forward to hitting the road and sharing these songs with audiences across Western Canada. It's been a long time coming, but we're proud to finally release a record which we feel fully represents us as a group."
GOLD & SHADOW's debut album 'TORCH' will be available online at iTunes and all other digital retailers on Friday, September 4th. GOLD & SHADOW will be touring in support of the album starting in Parksville on September 9th. Please visit goldandshadow.com for more information and the most up to date tour listings.
