The High Dials make their long-awaited return to the USA this week on the heels of a lengthy tour of the UK and Ireland. All dates are with The Get Real Gang (ex-Dr. Dog). Tour includes a CMJ showcase on Saturday.
UK fans who’ve been patiently waiting for a High Dials return since the band’s last tour with the BJM many moons ago may now cease waiting patiently. The band just announced a string of UK dates and even a pop over to Ireland.
While the High Dials busy themselves putting the final touches on an upcoming album (release date imminent!), their back catalogue of spaced-out pop continues to drift out into the wider world.
The band is currently enjoying mainstream exposure through the popular Netflix series “House of Cards”. Listen for their song “Uruguay” off of 2010′s “Anthems for Doomed Youth” in episode 208 of Season 2, released last week!
At the end of 2011, over a few warm Christmas wines whilst listening to Hall & Oates on repeat, the High Dials made a big decision. It was time to take a serious break. Rather than simply drift into a new album project, the band made a promise to one another- to indulge in some creative exploration without expectations or any timetable; to break as many unconscious rules as possible and see where the muse might lead them – hopefully exciting new and unvisited places.
On Oct. 30th, almost two years down the road, the self-imposed exile finally came to an end as long-time members Trevor Anderson, Robbie MacArthur and George Donoso took to a stage in Montreal to unveil some new material (and a couple of new musicians, Sheenah and Charles, on keys and bass). Other than a brief studio teaser and cool Stones cover, this has been the only sound the world has heard from the High Dials in, well, bloody ages!
