Tyler Bancroft told the Vancouver Sun:
“It feels really surreal, The JUNO’s are something I always watched from afar growing up. To be a part of it now is crazy.”
“Having the name of the band announced by Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning was something truly special.”
Over April they’ll tour across Canada with Tokyo Police Club and Dinosaur Bones. The band kick off their tour in Brighton U.K. this May for The Great Escape, before heading off to Liverpool Sound city and shows in the Capital.
