The Fugitives

The Fugitives, established in 2007, have released four records, which have been nominated for multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards and a Western Canadian Music Award. Their previous album, Everything Will Happen, spent ten weeks on the top ten Canadian folk charts, and earned them a support slot across Western Canada with Buffy Sainte-Marie and an appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival. Their follow-up, The Promise of Strangers, is set for release on January 26th on Borealis Records.


The Fugitives Signed To Light Organ Recor

Thanks to everyone who came out to all the shows in the UK! We had a blast and will be back soon. Please check our vblog for some of the shenanigans we got up to. And now! Some extremely exciting news:

The Fugitives are proud to announce we’re putting out our new album on Light Organ Records. Light Organ is home to many of the nation’s top emerging bands, including the Zolas, Louise Burns, Fake Shark Real Zombie, and our own Adrian Glynn, so we’re very psyched to be working with them.

We begin recording the new album in January with producer John Critchley (Dan Mangan, Amelia Curran, Elliot Brood) in Toronto. We’ll be playing a residency every Monday at the awesome Cameron House during that time, so please come rock out with us in Tdot. In addition, there is a Western Canada tour planned for March. Please see the gigs page for details.

We are extremely excited about the potential of the new songs and will be working hard over the next few months to make sure we get them sounding killer. We feel really blessed by the opportunity to work with so many talented people and to be supported by those who believe in us. We aren't taking it for granted, and we're hard at work!
