In Case You Missed It: Great Lake Swimmers Live From The Glenn Gould Studio

In case you missed it, Great Lake Swimmers performed live from The Glenn Gould Theatre in Toronto last week to celebrate the impending release of their fifth studio album, New Wild Everywhere (out now). The concert was broadcast live on CBC Radio 3 on March 20th, and is now available for viewing on CBC Canada Live. Watch it above here.

The band's international tour in support of the release of New Wild Everywhere kicks off today in Montreal at L'Astral. See full list of dates below. 

New Wild Everywhere Media Reaction:

“These are gentle transmissions from the eyes of life storms, to paraphrase Dekker, a songwriter who eases in and out of blue colours sublimely. It's as outreaching as we've heard yet from GLS, and an indication that the sky is still Dekker's limit. Another wonderful record…” --The Globe and Mail

"...their most mature and polished LP to date. Bouncing between draping strings and bluegrass fiddle, Dekker explores themes of love and change in his signature elemental style, and his choice of language lends a sense of timelessness to his songs." --Paste Magazine

“Dekker's new songs remain artfully enigmatic and haunting...” -- exclaim!

“Great Lake Swimmers, have graced us with an incredible new alb
um: This is another great notch on the belt of a band that has consistently put forth great music since their first release nearly a decade ago, and they show no signs of slowing down.” -- Northern Transmissions
