This week, one of my favorite Canadian bands, Suuns, announced their third album, Hold/Still.
Suuns became one of my beloved bands after the release of their 2010 debut, Zeroes QC, which is still a great record that you should check out if you haven't heard it before. They followed that up with Images du Futur in 2013 and a collaborative album with fellow Canadians Jerusalem in My Heart last year.
The new album was recorded with producer John Congleton (who also announced an album with his band this week), in Dallas last May. The announcement came with a new video for "Translate" and a Dark Sky remix of the track.
Hold/Still is set for release on April 15.
