sled island

Well, we made it back to Victoria a little earlier than expected, but safe and sound. Despite the circumstances, we had an AMAZING time at Sled Island. We are so thankful to our gracious host Deicha Carter who put us up in her home for the first night we spent in Calgary, and for finding us a place to stay on thursday night when her house was evacuated. We got to play our set on wednesday night, downstairs at the Palomino, and we can honestly say it was one of the highest energy sets we’ve ever played. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to see us. The city of Calgary has an amazing spirit and we’re sending out our best vibes to everyone there. Our time was short and sweet but we went to Edmonton and so did many other Sled Island bands and there ended up being some awesome shows to see. We’ll be back in Calgary on August 3rd, back at the Palomino. Can’t wait! See you soon, Calgary!

en route to sled island

Good morning from Canmore, AB!
We are currently on our way to Calgary to play Sled Island. We left on sunday (after a very fun show in Vancouver at Main and 15th for Car Free Day on the Rifflandia stage) and have had some long driving days ever since.
We camped in Cultus Lake Provincial Park on Sunday night and it was awesome. Here’s a PIC!!!!

The Chantrelles at Sled Island!

The Chantrelles at Sled Island!

As we’ve announced before, we’re very proud to say we’ll be playing the Sled Island music festival in Calgary, AB in a few weeks! We’ll be playing at The Palomino at midnight on wednesday, June 19 (or thursday morning if that confuses you like it does me.)

We released our first song in a long time on the Sled Island website, so be sure to go check it out! “Cry Baby” was recorded in December at the Noise Floor Recording Studio and will be on the full-length album we’ve been slaving away at the past few months.

lemon tree sessions 2012

here’s a photo of our recording session in january 2012. we recorded the rhythm section tracks for our first 7″ (ain’t nobody home/ooh wee) here. the vocals and horns were done as overdubs later on. this was a fun night.

we still have some of these records available at ditch records (on fort st) and also a ton you can buy at one of our shows!

speaking of which, our next show is THIS SATURDAY, MAY 4th at logan’s pub. we’re not the headlining band so get there early or you’ll miss out!
