Vernon band //AMISTAD// is about to release the first single off its upcoming sophomore album.
The lead off single, Radikal, is set for release Feb. 10.
The alternative five-piece heads back to Kelowna’s Bottega Studios over Valentine’s Day weekend to finish recording new EP, Talk Peace To A Wolf.
The follow up to last year’s album, LEE, has the band pushing their songwriting with some fresh new sounds.
Co-produced with Joseph Pinheiro, the EP is set for release in April.
“It’s like nothing we’ve done before,” said lead singer Aidan Andrews. “We’re hyped on these new songs and what Joe brought out of us. Sonically it’s not like anything we’ve ever done before. Together we do things differently, and it just works.”
A former creative manager at PolyGram/Universal Music Publishing, Pinheiro has worked with Jann Arden, Ashley MacIsaac and the Rainbow Butt Monkeys.
“When I first met (//AMISTAD//) I was really impressed with their musicianship and their live shows,” said Pinheiro. “But when they started to send me the new songs I was hooked. I’m really impressed with the songwriting right now. These five guys really click.”
//AMISTAD// will hit the road this summer in support of Talk Peace To A Wolf. Visit www.amistadband.com for more info.
