Great Lake Swimmers
Great Lake Swimmers
2018 marks the 15th anniversary of Great Lake Swimmers. The JUNO
nominated, Polaris Prize shortlisted Toronto group, fronted by lead singer-songwriter Tony Dekkerare pleased to announce new album The Waves, The Wake, releasing August 17, 2018 via Nettwerk. Recorded in the 145 year old Bishop Cronyn Memorial Church and produced by Chris Stringer (Union Sound),Tony decided to challenge himself by writing new music without
any acoustic guitar which has always been his instrumental mainstay. He further
digressed from previous songwriting patterns by looking at each track individually
and then tailoring the instrumentation to bring each song to life in its own distinctive way. The new record is preceded by a six track EP titled Side Effects, that features new songs
“The Talking Wind”, “Falling Apart” and “Side Effects” as well as fan favourites “Your Rocky Spine”, “Quiet Your Mind” and “I Became Awake”.
