Yukon Blonde Release Six Dead Tigers Single
JUNO Award Nominated Band Start Canadian Tour Tonight

Yesterday, Yukon Blonde released Six Dead Tigers, the new single in anticipation of their upcoming Canadian tour. Paired with a B-Side “Love Is Gonna Change You”, “Six Dead Tigers” is the latest single from the 2013 JUNO Award nominated band’s critically acclaimed sophomore album Tiger Talk. The Vancouver band recently released a video for Tiger Talk track “Guns” and is embarking on a Canadian headline tour, partnering up with friends Zeus on west coast dates and opens tonight in Toronto when Yukon Blonde supports Stars at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall. On June 29 they will perform in Niagara On The Lake with City and Colour, Metric, Serena Ryder and Jimmy Eat World. All tour dates are listed below and can also be found HERE

After hitting over 150 stages in North America & Europe since the 2012 release of their new album Tiger Talk, the Vancouver based band are ready to take the show back on the road this spring. The fall of 2012 saw Yukon Blonde share the stage with The Jezabels across the USA and The Sheepdogs across Canada  including a sold out performance to over 4000 people at Echo Beach in Toronto. They performed at major festivals such as Osheaga, Edgefest, NXNE, Wolfe Island Music Festival, Ottawa Folk Fest, Capitol Hill Block Party (Seattle), Denver Underground Music Festival and they even played at the official Much Music Video Awards after party with The Lumineers.



Yukon Blonde’s sophomore album Tiger Talk was the #4 most played album of the year at Canadian college and campus radio as reported by !earshot, was long listed for The Polaris Music Prize and has garnered widespread critical acclaim since being released by Dine Alone Records on March 20. The lead single “Stairway” was featured on commercials for the Toronto Blue Jays and played at their home games while an alternate version of “My Girl” is the soundtrack for a current Tourism Canada campaign with almost 700,000 views so far and now airing at major movie theatres in the UK. Heck, they were even name dropped on an episode of How I Met Your Mother
