"A Sleep & A Forgetting" out 2/14/12.

ISLANDS are set to hit the road this Spring with a full Canadian tour kicking off on March 10th in Halifax.  They’ll hit both coasts for a series of shows supporting their newest album, Ski Mask, in cities including Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver. A few US dates are in the mix as well, including shows in Portland, Maine, Grand Rapids, and Fargo.

Released last September, Islands’ latest album, Ski Mask, showcases Thorburn at his “predictably unpredictable” best.  A record that is equal parts beauty and venom, Ski Mask percolates with the kind of polymorphous pop and hooky, left-of-center rock songs that have long been the band’s stock and trade. Catch the band near you in March 2014! Full dates and ticket links below:
