Amos The Transparent Release New Album and Tour Ontario, Appearances at Pop Montreal and Halifax Pop Explosion To Be Announced

August 11, 2012 in Uncategorized by Audio Blood

Following closely on the success of their first two records, Amos the Transparent have released their latest album, Goodnight My Dear…I’m Falling Apart and are pleased to announce Ontario tour dates for the month of August hitting Toronto, Ottawa, and more. It’s shaping up to be a busy fall for the group who will also be announcing sets at this year’s Pop Montreal and Halifax Pop Explosion festivals in the coming weeks.

Goodnight My Dear…I’m Falling Apart
 is an album of growth for Amos the Transparent, exploring new dynamics and textures in their recorded work, and expanding to a seven-member unit including the recent additions of keyboard and strings. Calling on the expertise of Gus van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Hollerado), the band took the tracks to the Boiler Room in New York City for additional production and mixes. Standout tracks include “Says the Spark” and “Sure as the Weather” which suit the band’s indie pop stylings, but it’s “Convince the Mayor” that showcases a darker, more experimental edge never before seen. Upon release the band appeared on CBC’s Q and were featured in Cineplex movie theatres nationwide on a pre-show interview segment sponsored by SiriusXM Radio.

Dubbed “the Canadian Wilco” by CBC personality Jian Ghomeshi, Amos the Transparent have become indie-rock darlings since the critically acclaimed release of “Everything I’ve Forgotten to Forget” in 2007, followed in 2009 by “My, What Big Teeth You Have”. They’ve come to share the stage with the likes of Patrick Watson, Basia Bulat, and Zeus throughout the years and have toured internationally including stops in Australia, bringing their recorded works to life with the high energy and skill of a veteran touring act. Much love has come their way from fans and critics alike including a nomination for “Artist of the Year” at the 2009 XM Verge Music Awards, a top grade from ChartAttack in their annual North by Northeast report card in 2010, and recent licensing deals with Plenty of Fish, MTV, and Discovery Network.
