Toronto’s Meg Remy is revving up to release the latest U.S. Girls album, In a Poem Unlimited.
In collaboration with the Cosmic Range, the album’s new single, “Pearly Gates”, with its accompanying video directed by Chrissy Jones and featuring guest vocals by James Baley, plays with biblical themes of St. Peter and the seduction of being let into heaven. The visuals and themes play on a story Remy once heard from a man attempting to convince a woman to have unprotected sex.
In addition to “Pearly Gates,” and previous singles, “Velvet 4 Sale” and “Mad As Hell”, U.S. Girls will also embark on a US tour in March and April that will include a stop in Vancouver on March 25. The tour dates are as follows:

Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
