Riding high on two recent, back-to-back, sold out homecoming gigs at TRH in Montreal, the critically revered duo Solids Xavier Germain-Poitras (guitar) and Louis Guillemette (drums) – announce even more Canadian dates, adding to an almost endless tour schedule that has seen Solids on the move since the release of their debut record in February.

Solids will be performing at the Kootenay Co-op (Wednesday) June 18.

The band will spend almost all of May in the UK (where they play Leeds and the Great Escape Festival) and then head across Europe and Scandinavia. They return home to Canada for a POP Montreal co-presented run of shows in June, where the band stops at Sled Island along the way.

Their uncompromising, critically acclaimed debut album Blame Confusion was released on February 18 via Dine Alone Records.

Today the band reveal an intensity-fuelled, black and white video for their Blame Confusion album opener, Over The Sirens that is available as an exclusive premiere today with Chart Attack. It was shot by director Phil Console. Additionally, a blistering, live, in-studio performance at KEXP was just recently posted and worth a watch.

With a nod to 90’s influences like, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and Superchunk, Solids sublimate their hooky melodies through a wash of distortion and feedback.  Blame Confusion was recorded by Adrian Popovich at Mountain City Studio (We Are Wolves, Sam Roberts, The Dears).
