The Barr Brothers sign to Secret City, announce debut album and tour dates

We're pleased to announced that Montreal-based quartet The Barr Brothers will release their self-titled album debut on September 27th via Secret City Records. Recorded in their makeshift studio in an old boiler room at the foot of Mount Royal, the ten song album is an opus of beautiful folk, gut-busting blues and far-out African rhythms.

In addition to brothers Brad (guitar, vox, keys) and Andrew (drums, percussion) Barr, the album features core live members Sarah Pagé (harp) and multi-instrumentalist Andres Vial, with Miles Perkin (Lhasa) on bass, and a number of notable guests, including Elizabeth Powell (Land of Talk) and Jocie Adams (The Low Anthem).

The band will be taking their stunning live show to the road almost immediately, with tour dates announced in Quebec with Timber Timbre, and a performance at Montreal's outdoor Osheaga Festival in a couple weeks. More will be announced in support of the album in the coming weeks.
