The Besnard Lakes have announced a full UK tour for April in support of their new album, 'Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO', released on 1 April (2 April in US) via Jagjaguwar.
The album is the follow up to 2010's 'The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night', and is preceded by the single 'People of the Sticks'.
'Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO' had its humble beginnings in mid-2011 and was completed over the course of a year. Ever mindful and attentive to the most subtle and nuanced details, founding band members Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas produced, recorded and mixed the record at the stalwart Breakglass Studios in Montreal. It was mastered by the renowned Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, and the album features heavyweight additions by Moonface's Spencer Krug and Mike Bigelow, The Barr Brothers' Sarah Page, the always-enchanting Monica Guenter and the return of Fifth String Liberation Singers' Choir.
The story of the album unfolds its introspection on the endurance of the human spirit during prophetic times as told by a spy or two, maybe more. Each of the eight tracks on the album takes off, coasts, and lands smoothly, with a jubilant slowburn of its own momentum for the benefit of the larger picture. The Besnard Lakes create a distinct and dreamy headspace, an enigmatic and somehow familiar placelessness. It happens in such a way that both the close and casual listener find themselves immersed in the generous sonic vision, one moment as timeless as the next.
