Prince Edward Island band The East Pointers just keep coming with their plethora of announcements recently. Not only did they release their second full-length album What We Leave Behind this year, but it also gathered a whopping six Music PEI nominations. They also recently released a single off of the album, “Two Weeks”, a close-to-home take for many this time of year in the Maritimes. To round out their announcements, they also released a slew of Canadian tour dates after their very long stints overseas.
Throughout December and January, they are touring Australia and New Zealand, then coming back home for shows throughout February and the beginning of March.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
