NEWS: Yukon Blonde Announce 2012 World Wide Tour Dates In Support Of Upcoming Full Length Album, Set To Release New Single.

Vancouver four piece sign to Dine Alone Records for new album, prepare to release Stairway 7” inch single on January 31st in advance of highly anticipated sophomore LP.

Yukon Blonde have had a massive performance year. Along with wrapping up a 62 show North American tour behind their recently released Fire//Water EP while also playing festivals such as Ottawa Blues Fest, Mariposa Folk Festival, and Milwaukee Summerfest, they also toured with Plants & Animals and The Fling, and shared the stage with the likes of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Dawes, Josh Ritter, Elliott Brood and more.

The BC quartet is now getting ready to introduce the world to their next release: Stairway 7”.  The first single from their forthcoming sophomore album - a song called Stairway, brightly elevates the band's surging arrangements, and is sure to whet the palettes of fans both old and new. Slotted for release on January 31st, Yukon Blonde’s Stairway 7” will also include a B-Side, home-recorded DEMO version of a future album track called Radio, which assaults the speakers with a brash stomp worthy of early Elvis Costello. Melodically contrasted with one another, both songs on the Stairway 7" hint at the range of paths sonically taken with the band's sophomore LP, which will be available on Dine Alone Records in early 2012.

Artistically uncompromising as ever, Yukon Blonde have already proven that they are willing to go wherever their restless artistic muse takes them. The next stop: a live venue near you, as these road warriors will be racking up yet more miles on the odometer in the very near future and heading on tours across Australia, Europe and North America. Tour dates listed below.

In the meantime Yukon Blonde will be streaming their critically acclaimed Fire//Water EP in its entirety until January 10th
