NEWS: Evening Hymns bring Spectral Dusk to Halifax - Canadian tour dates announced

Currently on an extensive European tour which sees them play twenty-five cities in six European countries including festival dates at Berlin Music Week and Reeperbahn, Toronto's Evening Hymns are pleased to announce their upcoming Canadian tour this October and November in support of their much-lauded full-length album Spectral Dusk.  

Live, Spectral Dusk plays out with visceral raw emotion the feelings that were captured on disk. The album is an intensely personal album that finds songwriter Jonas Bonnetta dealing, through music, with the loss of his father who passed away in 2009. Recorded with musical friends in a cabin in northern Ontario, it takes on new form in its live incarnation, channeling new feelings of hope into the mix, and hitting home with the honesty of Bonnetta's powerful lyrics.

Aesthetic Magazine described their live performance as "a celebratory piece weaving through the motions of life and death and life again" while BlogTO compared singer Jonas Bonnetta to "a pastorally-inclined Mark Kozelek..." The band is currently on tour across Europe and the UK with friends and bandmates The Wooden Sky.

About Spectral Dusk
"Each song is perfect, in a sense that the message and meaning are delivered as complete thoughts and as Jonas intended. It's hard to conceptualize a series of questions that have no real answer and a pain that will never relent in a finite form, but Jonas put everything he has into each moment and it creates a full and fulfilling listen." - 

"brilliantly captures the transformative confusion of grief." - 9/10 The Grid 

"A 56-minute meditation on loss, pain, memory and responsibility, the new album is a heavy, patient, thematically rich snapshot of Bonnetta's upbringing in tiny Orono, Ontario, and his journey into adulthood, all told through his relationship with his father, who passed away in 2009" - Now Magazine
