Twin Within and Hidden Pony Records, in partnership with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra (HPO), are thrilled to announce the forthcoming special reinterpretation of Twin Within’s 2015 debut album, Horizontal Lines. The project’s recording will commence this January at Hamilton Place, with well-known local filmmaker, Mitch Fillion, of Southern Souls, stepping behind the camera to capture the whole experience. The campaign will showcase the beauty of Twin Within’s music, while shining a light on Hamilton’s ever-growing artistic community. Other Hamiltonians involved in the project are producer Kirk Starkey, and composer Christien Ledroit.
SAID THE WHALE will be touring Canada in the spring of 2016 in a reverse engineering exercise to road test new material for their next album. The Juno-award winning group have committed to a tour with a full set of songs that literally haven’t been written yet. Specifically selecting smaller, more intimate venues for the April and May dates, each night will be “an evening with” Said The Whale featuring a set of brand new material, followed by a set of Said The Whale classics.
