New Album, New Tours!

Hey all,

Just a note that we’re currently holed up in the studio recording our newest album. The great news is that it’s with the amazing John Raham at Afterlife. This is the old Mushroom studios – a beautiful sounding room with a lot of great history, with a fantastic engineer/producer/drummer to boot.

The album will be out in May, 2017, and followed that month with a tour of Germany. We are just putting the finishing touches on the full tour, which will last from May 3-28th, and will post them in a week or so.

Other tour plans are to the UK and Canada in the fall of 2017 and winter of 2018.

See y’all soon. Can’t wait to bring you a new album and new shows! Until then, enjoy these old ditties from 2 winters ago at the Canadian Winter Games.

 

 

New Album!

Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know that we aren’t dead but are instead holing up writing and recording a new album. It’s getting done this summer/fall and we will be back on the road touring it starting in May 2017.

Until then, we will be out in Smithers for their beautiful Midsummer Fest in July. And Adrian is releasing a new album in the fall! And Brendan is out touring his new monologue, “Brain”! You can check out their stuff here (Adrian) and here (Brendan).

But the priority remains, as always, more Fugitives tunes. Another album! Hooray!

Until then, if you haven’t seen this video with the choir for “Ring” you should. The choir sounds rad face.

 

The Fugitives do choral- NEW LIVE VIDEO

 

 

We joined forces with the East Van Choral Collective and members of the St James Music Academy in Vancouver to perform a new a capella arrangement of our tune, “Ring”, from our latest album, Everything Will Happen. Special thanks to the St James Anglican Church for letting us use their beautiful space. WATCH THE VIDEO HEREFugitives with East Van Choral Collective

Fugitives update: Fall Europe Tour/ New Music/ New Vids!

Hey all,

Sorry we have been a bit absentee this summer. We toured “Everything Will Happen” pretty straight for 2 years, so we took a summer off to decompress. Adrian toured with the fringe percussion group, Brendan wrote a new monologue, Ali released an album, Chris worked with his kick ass choir.

But this fall…we’re back! Should have a couple new vids to you by the end of September. About the same time we are headed into the studio to record some new songs. And then in October-November we have a whirlwind return to Europe set up, with six weeks of straight touring through the UK/Germany/Switzerland/Denmark. Hold on to your hats! Dates to come very soon!

For now, check out this live “Wilderness Years” vid we shot up in Prince George while out there for the Canadian Winter Games!

The Fugitives play the Green Party Rally

Hey all,

It’s Sunday, May 31st from noon- 3pm. See you there!

Canadian Folk Music Award Nomination

Hey all,

Excited to be nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Vocal Group of the Year. Hurrah for singing!

Let’s face it, this is a 96% Adrian Glynn award, but Brendan will take credit for adding just the right bit of generic-ism. You can’t be a group with one!

And on a serious note, thanks to all the people who sing with us: Ali Romanow, Chris Suen, Matt Elwood, Ben Elliot — and especially to Derek Kehler, Brandy Zdan, and Sahra Featherstone, who sang on Everything Will Happen — as well as the great people who came out for gang vocals during the biggest snowstorm in Toronto in the last 15 years. We heart you big time.

We are on the East Coast this weekend for a show at the Company House and a showcase at Contact East in Pictou. See you there!
