With the exception of a brief flurry of shows in March, the High Dials have been on hiatus from playing live while they continue to work on a film soundtrack (more news on that to come soon). Working on instrumental music collaboratively has opened up new doors of creativity in the band, about which all the members are excited. Time will tell how this new approach influences a future album. Singer-songwriter Trevor Anderson also took advantage of the break to return to Colombia, a recent place of inspiration, where he’s been working on new tunes for the group.
The band is about to come out of their creative cocoon for some select dates in July, culminating in a not-to-be-missed appearance at the OSHEAGA FESTIVAL in Montreal July 30. Catch them live on the following dates:
July 10th, 2011 – Sorel-Tracy, QC (Festival de la Gibelotte)
July 16th, 2011 – Toronto, ON (The Silver Dollar)
July 27th, 2011 – Ottawa, ON (Zaphod Beeblebrox w/ guests TBA)
July 30th, 2011 – Montreal, QC OSHEAGA MUSIC FEST (w/ Eminem, Flaming Lips, Elvis Costello and more!)
