Take a listen to “The Fear” from Nova Scotia-based musician Rich Aucoin from his upcoming release of the Hold EP (set for release on 3/16). “The Fear” follows the release of previous singles “Release” and “The Middle,” all of which will be featured on the upcoming EP. The dreamy four-track collection is a stark contrast to the short high-tempo songs from his previous release, hinting toward a rebirth for Aucoin. Recorded in twelve studios across Canada from Vancouver’s REC Room to Halifax’s Sonic Temple, the EP features Broken Social Scene’s Justin Peroff as well as unique instrumentals and vocal sampling techniques.
Unlike a traditional tour, Aucoin will be bicycling from city to city via the PRESS ON tour, raising awareness for mental health by donating 100% of tour proceeds to Mental Health America and The Canadian Mental Health Association.
