Great Lake Swimmers Bring Fall Tour to New Brunswick

Category: music 191

Great Lake Swimmers will perform shows in Saint John, Moncton, Fredericton and Sackville this month.

Great Lake Swimmers return to the east coast this month for a string of dates that include four New Brunswick performances.

For over a year now, the band have been busy touring in support of their latest release, The Waves, The Wake, and have played across Europe, the United States and much of Canada. Following this jaunt, which includes shows throughout Quebec and Ontario as well, the group’s members will mostly likely take a well-deserved rest before plotting their next moves.

Considered by some to be a slight departure for the group, The Waves, The Wake has earned an admirable amount of praise.

“The Waves, The Wake is a beautiful achievement, rife with rich and varied instrumentation and textures, engaging vocals, and bittersweet, poignant lyrics.”  – Big Takeover

“The shimme that illuminate such songs as “Mouth of Flames” and “The Open Sea” are contrasted, albeit briefly, in the upbeat tick of “Alone But Not Alone” and the quiet insistence of “Side Effects,” but it’s the acapella “Visions of a Distant World” that best defines the effort overall…melodies that are both elusive and surreal.” – Paste Magazine

“Dekker renews Great Lake Swimmers’ sound while still retaining the atmospheric singing and subtle yet intricate guitar playing that are quintessential to the band. It’s a tricky balance, but Dekker and his sprawling team of contributors pull it off with aplomb.” – Exclaim!

Tickets are on sale now for all upcoming NB shows with the exception of the Sackville show.  Tickets for that show are available at the door only.
