Woodpigeon returns with ‘BALLADEER’ on vinyl, plus ‘Calgary Tower’ EP

Woodpigeon spent the summer in the fields, woods and meadows but is set to emerge with the coming of autumn. You can find BALLADEER / to all the guys i’ve loved before in stores on vinyl and digitally online, along with a new digital EP, Our Love is as Tall as the Calgary Tower today.BALLADEER was originally only available as a bonus CD included with Woodpigeon’s critically acclaimed third album,Die Stadt Muzikanten, released this past February.

BALLADEER was recorded at home in Calgary and in a Dublin hotel, and was completed last autumn while Mark Andrew Hamilton was in Banff, Alberta working with producers Steve Albini, Howard Bilerman and Husky Hoskulds. The resulting twelve beautifully crafted and intimate songs feature collaborations with England’s Beth Jeans Houghton, Montreal’s Witchies and Scotland’s Eagleowl.

Our Love is as Tall as the Calgary Tower features a cover of Withered Hand’s “No Cigarettes”, two remixes including one of the title track by Montag, plus the brand new song, “Hove Beach”. In addition, Woodpigeon has a new video out today for “Our Love is as Tall ad the Calgary Tower“, directed by Darren Pasemko.

Woodpigeon is currently on tour in Europe, with two Canadian dates announced in Toronto and Calgary as well.
