NEWS: The Paint Movement To Release 7 Inch In Advance Of LP & Prepare To Hit The Road With Yukon Blonde

A year in the making, Nevado Records Artists From Toronto, The Paint Movement's upcoming full length album was finished in early 2011.

 Produced and mixed by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Apostle of Hustle) the album was recorded in what is (allegedly) the oldest building left standing in the small town of Trenton, Ontario: a church, which has been converted into a full recording studio. Long drives up the 401 from the band's home in Mississauga/Oakville to Trenton on weekends the band would go up to the studio a few days at a time to work on the album. Throughout this entire time the band decided not to play any shows and just focus entirely on writing the music.

The Paint Movement returned to live music by premiering the songs from the album live at two sold-out shows at The Dakota Tavern in Toronto in January 2011 and is now gearing up for a national tour with friends Yukon Blonde. The first two songs Fortune’s Window and Heart Lids will be released on March 1st as a digital 45 and a tour-only 7" which will initially only be available at shows. The band hits the road with Vancouver’s Yukon Blonde starting March 2nd and will be opening 14 shows for the Polaris Music Prize nominated band as well as a performance at Canadian Music Week at El Mocambo (upstairs) at midnight. The Paint Movement’s full length album will be released by Nevado Records later this year.
