Great North releases their debut full length album, Newfoundland, on November 1, 2010 through Border Music.
Recorded by David Parker (Artisan Guns, Bearcat, Teacups) at Little Monster Studios, Newfoundland adds energy and sharpened arrangement to the strong melodies of the band’s 2009 EP Soldiers. Strains of country, indie, folk and pop are melded into songs that sound like Bruce Springsteen remembering a tumultuous love affair with Gillian Welch between pained sips at a cup of tea.
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Great North features Hayden Donnell on lead vocals and guitar, Dale Campbell on piano and vocals, Rachel Harrison on bass and vocals, Strahan Cole on electric guitars and Olly Scott-Dye on drums.
The band will celebrate the release of Newfoundland at the Wine Cellar in Auckland on November 12 with Hold Dear before embarking on a North Island tour with Glass Owls.
Tour dates are:
9th December - Auckland – Whammy Bar
10th December - Hamilton - Void
11th December - Wellington - Mighty Mighty
18th December - Leigh – Leigh Sawmill Café w/ Artisan Guns and Dictaphone Blues
