Last Gang Records is pleased to announce Toronto’s Meligrove Band will be hitting the states for a national tour including dates supporting Tokyo Police Club, Arkells and Born Ruffians throughout the summer. Kicking off on September 25th in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Meligrove Band will be on the road non-stop supporting the release of their critically acclaimed full-length Shimmering Lights, out September 21.
As previously announced, the band unleashed the record’s first single, "Halflight," as a free digital download. You can grab it here.
Meligrove Band is: Jason Nunes (vocals, guitar, organ), Darcy RegoMichael Small (bass), and Brian O’Reilly (guitar, synth). Together they make music that is heavy, yet pop; it’s noisy, but it’s full of melody. Catchy hooks sit alongside violins, organs and brass, wired through any number of guitar pedals – all atop a pounding, fuzz-bass rhythm section. (vocals, drums, guitar),
They’ve taken their explosive live show across North America, the UK, and even the Azores, touring with the likes of Dinosaur Jr, Tokyo Police Club, the Constantines among others, playing anywhere from large outdoor festivals and concert halls to Brooklyn art galleries, Philadelphia church basements, and the Curling Club in Kenora, Ontario. A full list of tour dates is below.
