The Salteens started Boompa Records to put out their sophomore album, Let Go Of Your Bad Days. That was 7 years ago, and since then Boompa has released a lot of other albums while the Vancouver-based band has remained largely silent. We are proud to announce the end of that irony. On May 11 Boompa Records will release the Moths EP in Canada, Japan and the USA, in advance of the long awaited Salteens LP, Grey Eyes, due out late this summer.
Amidst several attempts at completing a full length album the band was taken off task by numerous personal upheavals, artistic miss-directs, and an appearance on Yo Gabba Gabba–clearly a confusing time. Pulled together from a number of recording sessions that took place during 2007 and 2008, Moths is a document of songwriter Scott LD Walker’s angers and frustrations, resulting in a typically Salteens-like call to arms in attempt to overcome life’s hardships.
