We are pleased to announce the release of our new seasonal/Christmas single, “Footsteps on the Roof.

The song is available for download via our Bandcamp page:

All proceeds collected from downloads of “Footsteps on the Roof” from Bandcamp will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, the local non-profit agency with a mission to “create empowering environments that provide and promote access to healthy food, education and training.” The Food Bank provides food and services to Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and the North Shore, where the members of the band all live.

Tim describes what “Footsteps on the Roof” is about: “It’s about a kid who’s at an age where they may be starting to doubt the existence of Santa Claus. They see Christmas activities already starting up before Hallowe’en and realize the improbability of Santa coming down a blocked chimney, not to mention that reindeer don’t fly. But they also begin to understand how hard their parents work to provide for them and, because of this, will continue to wait for Santa’s arrival.”

Tim wrote partly from experience: “I grew up in a household where both my parents worked long hours on opposite shifts to try to make ends meet. And as we get into the spirit of giving, the band feels it is appropriate to donate the money from downloads of the song to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, which greatly assists families in need.”

“Footsteps on the Roof” is the initial release from the recording sessions for our upcoming and as yet unnamed fourth album which is currently being recorded and produced at Vancouver’s JC/DC Studio by David Carswell (The New Pornographers, Tegan & Sara, Destroyer, the Evaporators, Adrian Teacher and the Subs). The album is slated for release in 2018.

And don’t forget, we have two upcoming pre-Christmas gigs on the Lower Mainland: Friday, November 24 at Captains Cabin Pub in Mission and Friday, December 22 at the Fairview Pub in Vancouver.

Footsteps on the Roof” is also available on streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud and others, as well as available for download from iTunes, CD Baby, Google Play, etc. Here’s the song as posted on YouTube.
