Featuring over 500 musicians, friends and fans from across Canada, We’re All Dying To Live came out on October 25th to rave reviews. The video for “It” was called the # 1 Canadian video of the year by exclaim! as well as hitting Paste Magazine’s year end list and being added to AUX TV, Much Music, Much More Music, MTV 2 and Musique Plus.

“Rich Aucoin’s CD captures joie de vivre and desperation of youth. … seizes the listener by the collar from the first note”  The Globe and Mail

“…his aesthetic is pure exuberance, joie de vivre distilled into a sweaty, sing-a-long dance party. We’re All Dying to Live seems less an album than a group hug, with Aucoin gathering every single friend, colleague, good feeling and better idea together and squeezing them with loving abandon.” Album Of The Week, The National Post

“When a show is so physical, colour­ful and inclusive, jammed with familiar visuals, high-energy sing-alongs, lights and confetti, a mass-huddle, a finale under a parachute and a performer who grips your shoulder and sings to you—everyone was treated to a personalized couplet that day at Divan Orange—it’s unforgettable, for life.” Montreal Mirror

“We're All Dying to Live is a headphone masterpiece” exclaim!
