Evening Hymns are sung from the cathedrals of talls trees. They capture the spirit of moments, of friends around a bonfire on a foggy beach, the crunching of snowshoes in the silence of a winter night and memories of tribal boys growing up with pellet guns, fishing and handmade forts.
In fall 2011, Toronto’s Evening Hymns will be returning to Europe for an extended tour through various countries, leading into their upcoming record ’Spectral Dusk’. The band is humbled and grateful to have been invited by two of their favorite acts, Agnes Obel and Timber Timbre, to support both of them on their European tours.
’Spectral Dusk’ covers very personal issues, and takes Evening Hymns, from their last record‚ ’Spirit Guides’, musically and lyrically to the next level.
Preview the new songs, ’Family tree’ and ’You and Jake’, recorded for a session with La Blogotheque:
The record will be released in spring 2012. Recorded in a log cabin in Northern Ontario with the band’s closest friends it features members of The Wooden Sky, Timber Timbre, City and Colour and more. With ’Spectral Dusk’ the band is following up on their critically acclaimed debut record ’Spirit Guides’, appearances at Reeperbahnfestival, Top of the Folks, Pop Montreal, NXNE festival and a successful European tour in spring 2011. The shows will take Evening Hymns to various countries all over Europe and eventually to Festival Transmusicales in France as well.
