After the quick sell 0ut of their acoustic show in April we’re excited to welcome back local alt-rock legends, The Town Heroes, – with able support from George Woodhouse and the Public Service – for another go at The Carleton on Sunday, December 15th. Show time is 7pm. Advanced tickets are $17.50 or you can pay $20 at the door.
They’ve toured the world, released three critically acclaimed albums and won an array of industry awards. Anthemic choruses, 3-part harmonies, tender falsettos and big drums highlight their riff driven, dirty-yet-nuanced barrage of sound. On stage they move like intense caricatures – soaked in sweat, pushing every chord, note and beat to the limit. A structured wall of sound emerges; familiar yet distinctive. Camaraderie shows in their musicianship, their songwriting highlights what they are: friends playing music for the love of it, in it for the long haul.
Everything (will be fine when we get to where we think we’re going) is the band’s 4th full length release. Merging modern pop-sensibilities with their alt-rock influences, the band has crafted 11 beautifully hook laden tracks oozing with hit potential. There’s a maturity in the album, both musically and conceptually – a growth that can only happen through a dedication to their craft, through hundreds of live shows around the world and an unrelenting belief in what they’re doing. The album is simultaneously fun and thought provoking, danceable arrangements coupled with contemplative self awareness and social conscience. At heart, a perfect soundtrack for contemplating life with a bounce in your step.
