Podcast with Nick Thorburn backstage in Winnipeg with Matt Moskal + new tour dates with The Both!

01:07PM 03/26/14

Islands is wrapping up their frigid trans-Canadian tour, aka the #sadtour, in about a week, which will be closely followed by the start of a solo tour by Nick Diamonds of Islands (joining him will be Islands bandmate, Evan Gordon), in support of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo’s new duo, The Both, on the East US coast. Check out dates in the Tour tab. Hopefully this next run is a little more warm and a lot less sad.

On a lighter note, Nick was recently interviewed by Matt Moskal backstage at the recent Islands Winnipeg show in Canada. The duo discuss deep topics like the meaning of water, slapping bandmates on stage, Nick’s discography, The Unicorns, favorite bands of the moment, and much more in the podcast which can and should be streamed HERE.

Watch this video of Islands playing “Shotgun Vision”, off the album, Ski Mask,  live at Pappy & Harriet’s on January 16, 2014.
