Public Animal to release 2nd single/video from Palace Arms and more tour dates!
February 19, 2017
Public Animal will release 20th Century Strategies as the second single from Palace Arms (Yeah Right Records) in February along with a live video (edited by drummer Ryan Gassi from PA’s fall tour) that Exclaim! will premiere(teaser here: https://youtu.be/tsyvHNCDCWI)
on Feb.17th and a new non-LP B-side (If You Wander. Available digitally at PA’s Bandcamp) to coincide with their up-coming Feb and March dates as the band continues its Palace Arms crusade…..
Public Animal: Born in 2012 and named after a Alice Cooper song. Their high energy rock and roll finds co-vocalists Ian Blurton and Caitlin Dacey weaving fuzz guitar and distorted organ lines over the groove oriented rhythm section of Eric Larock and Ryan Gassi. Together they build a sweat-soaked shrine to 60s/70s rock, a greasy machine held together by strands of psych, pop, prog, garage doom, shoegaze and soul.
In the 4 years since their inception they have toured Canada from sea to sea while releasing a steady stream of songs (LP/7”/digital/cd) on labels including Yeah Right!, Teenage Rampage, No List/Noise Agony Mayhem, Squirtgun in Canada and Electrohasch in Germany.
December 2015 found Public Animal taking over the Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Studios outside Kingston, Ontario, where esteemed engineer Nyles Spencer helmed a feverish four-day session. During the following spring and summer guitarist/ vocalist Ian Blurton manned overdubs and mixed the resulting ten
song record at PA’s Toronto home, ProGold Studio, before passing it onto
Brad Boatright (Sleep, Pentagram) for mastering at Audiosiege, in Portland.
Fri Feb 24 Toronto at The Baby G with Mountain Dust (Mtl), Hawkeyes (K/W) and Rough Spells. $10. 9pm doors. 19+.
