Royal Canoe Releases 10" 'Extended Play' EP In Europe; Tour Dates Start May 13 In Manchester

"If you were to marry the harmonies and psychedelic pop of Animal Collective with the frenzied vocal phrasing of Modest Mouse and throw in the falsettos of the Temper Trap for good measure, you can imagine Royal Canoe’s sound.” -- BaebleMusic

Royal Canoe is a group of musicians on a mission to construct ambitious, inventive music. The Winnipeg natives have signed with Nettwerk for Europe, and will release a numbered 10” vinyl Extended Play EP on May 10 (Germany)/May 13 (UK/Europe), followed by a full length album later in the year.

The lead track on the 10” EP, "Hold on to The Metal" will be available for free download HERE. Watch the video for the track above.

Royal Canoe held the #1 spot at We Are Hunted for 3-weeks, and Filter Magazine declares, “Buckle up – the band is anything but your standard indie-pop. Known for their genre bending approach and their songs are clearly written with innovation in mind. We dare you not to dance.” After a successful appearance at SXSW, they are now gearing up for a heavy few months of touring with dates in the U.S. and Europe including shows at the Great Escape Festival, and performances with Fol Chen, Of Montreal, ON AN ON and more to support the release of their EP. European tour dates are listed after the jump.
