Band Celebrates Career High SoundScan Debut, With “New Wild Everywhere” Landing At #33 On The Top Albums Chart

This week, Toronto’s Great Lake Swimmers celebrated the debut of their fifth studio album, New Wild Everywhere, by premiering a brand new video for the album’s title track with The Globe And Mail ( Set on Toronto Island, it is directed by Adam Makarenko, who hand crafted a miniature city of Toronto and used CGI technology to add impressive visual effects that showed the city being brought to life and reclaimed by nature.

The band is also celebrating a career high SoundScan debut this week, landing at #33 on the Top Albums Overall Chart, #11 on the Alternative Albums Chart and #17 on the Digital Overall Albums Chart.

Great Lake Swimmers have performed at CBC Toronto’s Glenn Gould Studio and in front of the Beluga Whales at The Vancouver Aquarium in the weeks leading up to the release of New Wild Everywhere.
