Woodpigeon bonus album, tour dates, free downloads

Woodpigeon has toured Europe so extensively over the past couple of years that the band hasn’t played more than a handful of shows at home in Canada.  And so we‘re very, very pleased to announce Canadian tour dates including record release celebrations in Vancouver and Calgary in support Die Stadt Muzikanten, out January 12 in Canada.  In addition, Die Stadt Muzikanten will include a bonus album recorded with Howard Bilerman, Steve Albini and Husky Hoskulds; 12 new songs entitled BALLADEER / to all the guys i’ve loved before.

There’s still time to pre-order Die Stadt Muzikanten here, and if you do you’ll not only get the album by January 12, but you’ll also get acoustic versions of each song.

Here are free downloads of the album-track “Empty-Hall Sing-Along”, and to celebrate the holiday season, “xoxmas”.
