LADYHAWK Announce New Album, Offer Sneak Peak

For those of you who enjoy your rock’n’roll soaked in alcohol, we have good news. Come March 4th, 2008 (UK release April 7th), LADYHAWK will release a new full length titled “Shots”.

With a full length and 12″ under their belt, Ladyhawk took up residence in an abandoned farm house behind the shopping mall in the band’s childhood hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia, armed only with recording gear, sangria and a piss pot. Two weeks later “Shots” was born. It is an album filled with the cold creaking and ghostly echoes of the old house in the dead of winter. Like a party for the last house standing in a sea of strip malls and condos, surely near the end of its time. “Shots” is the sound of Ladyhawk getting loose, turning up loud, downing a few more and howling at the moon. It evokes the devilish sounds of Goats Head Soup guitars, the honey-slides and howling of Neil Young in his darkest hours, and the phantoms that haunted Roky Erickson at the Holiday Inn.

Experts at bottling the misty mountain ghostly blues offered on their self titled debut, it should be clear, this is not classic rock; this is not southern rock. “Shots” is a step forward toward someplace your compass doesn’t point.

A sneak peak of the album is being offered by our friends at Fader Magazine. You can hear the track “I Don’t Always Know What You’re Saying” here

New PARTS & LABOR and LADYHAWK releases now available for pre-order

These 2 fab new release for May are now available for pre-order at SC Distribution:

Parts & Labor – Mapmaker cd/lp

Mapmaker is the second Jagjaguwar/Brah album from Brooklyn noisepunks Parts & Labor. Expanding on the soaring melodies and cracked electronics of 2006′s Stay Afraid, P&L explores a wider array of berserk, malfunctioning instruments and intricate, pummeling rhythms. These 12 political/personal anthems about ambition and distraction boast bigger choruses, denser drones and shinier hooks.

Ladyhawk – Fight For Anarchy 12″

Ladyhawk entered a recording studio for a day-long session between tours in the first half of 2006. Perhaps they then soared too close to the sun, like moths drawn into the flame, only to fly again into the shadows, their wings singed. And then maybe, gathering their burned and broken instruments about them, they limped their way home, rearranging the pieces and sounds haphazardly, letting them all lay as they fell.

The end result is the sound of four brothers breaking something down to create something new, reaching into the fire again. It is a shattering 6-song march called Fight For Anarchy, all unmuzzled and jawing out, nothing edited or expunged. And on it Ladyhawk show that, like Spoon, Dinosaur Jr. or Tom Waits, they have the ability to conjure growls, snarls, and storms of sound into musical lightning, never striking the same place twice.

LADYHAWK Releases single; Prepares New Album; Tours U.S. and Canada

Following a series of triumphant performances at SXSW, the guys in Vancouver’s LADYHAWK are taking their incendiary live show on the road. The first leg of the tour finds them teaming up with Constantines for some pure rock ‘n’ roll nights throughout Central and Western Canada. Soon after the completion of the Cons/’Hawk extravaganza, Ladyhawk hooks up with Tapes N’ Tapes to cut a swathe across the U.S.

While fans of Ladyhawk’s debut will be pleased to know those songs still form the crux of Ladyhawk’s performance, what makes these shows so exciting is that it’s a chance to hear songs from the band’s upcoming (release date: May 22) six-song EP, “Fight For Anarchy”, as well as from their as yet unnamed second album. Due out in spring 2008, the new disc was recorded by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Pink Mountaintops, Lightning Dust, etc). It may seem like a long way off, but time flies and excitement’s in the air.

You can hear “War” the single from Ladyhawk’s upcoming “Fight For Anarchy” EP right here:

LADYHAWK Spread Their Wings Wide & Tour, Prep EP

As the weather gets warmer and the 2007 touring season kicks into full gear Ladyhawk will be embarking on their biggest tour to date. They begin March 3 on a tour containing sixteen American dates and eleven Canadian dates taking them far and wide across North America. Joining them on this expedition at different points will be the esteemed company of The Constantines, Mary Timony, and Saturday Looks Good To Me. And of course, as with seemingly all March tours, Ladyhawk’s, too, will gravitate towards the Live Music Capital Of The World, and the South By Southwest Music Festival. You can catch Ladyhawk at SXSW at the Jagjaguwar Showcase March 15 at Mohawk (formerly Velvet Spade), and the Chunklet Magazine Party the following day on March 16 at Red Seven. And look for May Dates with Ladyhawk on Tour with Tapes N’ Tapes as well!

Tour Dates

New Release from Ladyhawk!
Ladyhawk’s second release, the “Fight For Anarchy” 12-inch, will be released May 22. Ladyhawk know that life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes you get up just to get down again. Sometimes you run just to feel the wind against your face, and sometimes you stand still to watch things crumble around you. Knowing this, Ladyhawk got up – way up – and entered a recording studio for a day-long session between tours in the first half of 2006. Perhaps they then soared too close to the sun, like moths drawn into the flame, only to fly again into the shadows, their wings singed. And then maybe, gathering their burned and broken instruments about them, they limped their way home, rearranging the pieces and sounds haphazardly, letting them all lay as they fell.

The end result is the sound of four brothers breaking something down to create something new, reaching into the fire again. It is a shattering 6-song march called Fight For Anarchy, all unmuzzled and jawing out, nothing edited or expunged. And on it Ladyhawk show that, like Spoon, Dinosaur Jr. or Tom Waits, they have the ability to conjure growls, snarls, and storms of sound into musical lightning, never striking the same place twice.
