Rah Rah, Regina, Saskatchewan’s expansive rock collective announce the release of their new 7” Little Poems on June 12, 2012. It offers two stand alone tracks, Little Poems and I Could Tell You I’m Sorry, not available on the new full-length, but still in the tone of the band’s third, most ambitious and sensational new studio album The Poet’s Dead (on Hidden Pony Records) coming out this fall.

Listen to the track Little Poems here (and pre-order the single): www.rahrahband.net
The song re-visits the quintessentially Rah Rah combination of trade-off lead vocals from Marshall Burns and Erin Passmore and dwells in the heavy complexity of relationships and being “poor, drunk and scared of being alone,” told through a poetically skewed lens of life on the road, playing in a band.

The Poet’s Dead was recorded in the fall of 2011 under the production guidance of indie-rock recording geniuses Gus Van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Hollerado, Preistess). Rah Rah have truly fine-tuned the essence of the band and refined the maturity of their sound with this record. If Arcade Fire is musically informed by Springsteen, Rah Rah draws a musical footnote from Neil Young while weaving an endlessly impressive amount of contemplation and maturity into their heart-on-their-sleeve songs. Lyrically, The Poet’s Dead showcases some of the finest songwriting from the band and the strongest collective step forward to date.

Even in any brief downtime, Rah Rah never stop creating. Erin Passmore, released her solo record, Downtown earlier this year, and Marshall Burns and his alt-country side-project The Lonesome Weekends just released their second album Songs From A Barstool on April 17. Rah Rah will play select North American stops in May and June including a Hidden Pony Showcase at The Dakota for NXNE on June 15. Current announced dates follow below.

Further details around The Poet’s Dead, including confirmed release date, listening parties, artwork, pre-order campaigns and further tour plans will be unveiled soon.
