STRUTTed and Fretted

November 13th, 2012 by

We had an incredible time participating in STRUTT 2012. Big shout-outs to the NAC and Ms. Deanna Jones for including our music in the show. Much obliged to Bradley Thachuk and the members of the Niagara Symphony Orchestra for putting up with us hacks for a few days and breathing some life into our songs.

The St. Catharines Standard posted a nice video recap of the night, which features a new song called “Grave Dodgers.”

The Brock Press has also posted a solid review.

We’ll be back in The Garden City on December 1st. We’re getting paired up with a video artist for the show. Should be cool. See you then.

Shows

We have a few shows on the horizon in Toronto and St. Catharines. First up, we’ll be playing Rancho Relaxo in Toronto on October 27 with California Death Rays, Rulers of the Moon and Black Hat Brigade. Rulers of the Moon are celebrating their album release, and it’s Rancho Dan‘s birthday, too. Buy him a shot. Here’s the event page.

We’ve been asked to be a part of this year’s STRUTT Wearable Art Weekend in St.Catharines, specifically the soundtrack to the runway show on November 3rd.  Here’s some footage from last year’s event. Things are gonna get wild.  Tickets are $35 for general admission.

On December 1st, we’ll be returning to St. Catharines for the NAC‘s Half-Dozen Bands of Christmas. It’s in a fancy place. Should be fun.

Set times and specifics can be found on our Shows page.


Interviews

We recently chatted with The Rock Club out of the UK. You can check out the Q & A here.

Jamie and Mike sat down with Toronto blog Grayowl Point. Check out the interview here.


Press

Here’s what’s being said about Trophy Lovers:

“They … excel at wall-of-sound pulsating drones, and that’s really what this kind of music is all about.” — NOW Magazine

Trophy Lovers … just wants to rock out and knock your socks off, and do so with a splash of melodies courtesy of some shimmering synth washes and walloping guitars.” — Quick Before it Melts

“Epic atmosphere.” — Grayowl Point

“Old World Vulture have crafted a stunning debut album that plays to all of their strengths.” — Audio Reckoning

“The quartet have created some interesting hybrids that successfully allows them to continue to further themselves from the post-rock trappings that they managed to vault on their breakout self-titled EP.” — Sonic Masala

“Instrumentals seemingly turned all the way up to 11 … yet it’s all very technical, well crafted and catchy.” — Elusive Little Comments
