NEWS: Yukon Blonde Prepare For Coast To Coast Tour & Share News About Upcoming Album

With yet another North American tour under their belts in late 2010, including sold out dates with fellow Polaris Music Prize nominees The Wooden Sky, one of Canada’s best live bands kick off 2011 by continuing to do what they do best. This time Yukon Blonde head out from their hometown of Vancouver by playing with Montreal’s Plants and Animals in western Canada and then taking on headlining duties with Nevado recording artists The Paint Movement opening for them as they cross into Ontario and head to the east coast including for the first time ever two dates in Newfoundland at The Ship in St. John's.

In other news the band has been holed up in a west coast cabin writing songs since the beginning of the year. It has gone so well that the band is demoing all the songs this month and hoping to get into the studio by May to begin work on their sophomore full length. Singer and guitar player Jeff Innes explains:

"We finally got a month off from the road and after spending some time at home with family we went to a cabin in the Comox Valley and spent a couple of weeks in January writing new songs. We then went back to Kelowna to spend another week in isolation where we finished writing the rest of the record. We're planning on recording it this spring in between tours." 
In the meantime, fans of the band can whet their whistles by listening to the song they recorded for a split seven inch with pals The Wooden Sky that was released last fall called Waffle Iron.
