Even though “Burial Suit” was our first listen in Still Life Still‘s new album Mourning Trance, “In Enemies” is the first official single. The Toronto band (more specifically East York band, its a district in Toronto that I happen to live in too) will see their record out August 20th on Arts & Crafts.

Listening to the latest from Still Life Still called “Burial Suit”, the first track from the East York, Ontario band’s forthcoming sophomore album. The song was produced and recorded in Toronto by Alex Bonefant (Metz, Crystal Castles) and can be streamed below (or downloaded at Rolling Stone).
“”Burial Suit” was always the starting point for our upcoming LP,” explains vocalist Brendan Saarinen. “We wrote it in the dead of winter after a year of demoing and scrapping a lot of songs. It’s about breaking rituals and routines; how love can take you to strange, sometimes messed up places. When we finished recording it, there was a weird vibe in the air, like we had started fresh but knew we’d always been there.”
I got a note from Musebox recently about a show they’re putting together on Dec. 9th in Toronto. Rudely Interrupted, a 6 person band from Australia, are touring to North American to perform at the UN in New York for Disability Day on December 3rd. Of the 6 members of the band, 5 members share a range of disabilities from autism, blindness to down syndrome. Musically speaking, they describe themselves as “Joy Division having a Gary Numan Party while eating pitch-perfect cookies“.
The show looks to be a fun night, with local bands Still Life Still and The Rural Alberta Advantage joining the bill. Want to go? Enter the contest.
The Winner will receive:
two tickets to the show on December 9th
1 special United Nations edition of Rudely Interrupted‘s ‘Dont Break My Heart‘ EP
1 copy of the Rural Alberta Advantage‘s ‘Hometowns‘
Simply write you name (and link to your e-mail) in the comments, we’ll draw a lucky winner. Contest ends at noon EST on December 8th.
