Yes, we are working on a new record!


Yes, it might seem like things are quiet at the ol’ Brasstronaut camp these days, but we ARE chipping away at songs. Busy in the workshop, so to speak. The new tracks are really coming along and we’re excited to share them with you. We’ll let you know soon when exactly that will be!

In the meantime, here’s A little update on what we’ve been up to from the good folks at Exclaim.

Latest Podcast for Tin Angel Records


Hi, everyone, Tariq here.

Upcoming summer shows


We’re looking forward to playing two BC shows this summer. The first is the Khatsahlano Music & Arts Festival in Vancouver on Saturday, July 13th. It’s basically a giant street party, so come on down. And, it’s free. We’ll be performing a 35-45 minute set on the main stage starting at 6:15PM.

On Saturday, August 24th, we will be performing at the Otalith Music Festival in Ucluelet, BC. Other bands on the bill include The Cave Singers, Kathryn Calder, Portage & Main, and many, many more–check out their website for full details.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

New Video for the song “Bounce”



Last year, while on tour in Europe, a friend of ours invited us to a farm in Tuscany. We had a few days off, so we decided to take him up on the offer. We drove rolling and winding country roads to the middle of nowhere, a magnificent nowhere, mind you, and for the next two days, we played music in old, crumbling castles, had some proper sleeps and swam in the pool. And, our other friends Jeff and Clemens brought along some video cameras so we wouldn’t forget we were there.

Watch it on our Music Videos page.

Two more dates added to European Tour in France and Germany


We’re also playing in Darmstadt, Germany on April 21, 2013 @ Bedroom Disco and Paris, France on April 23, 2013 @ Espace B.
