The Strumbellas released their highly anticipated fourth album, Rattlesnake on March 29, 2019 (in Canada via the band’s own imprint, Underneath A Mountain Records, under exclusive license to eOne Music Canada; and internationally with Glassnote Records). To celebrate the release, the band has shared the video for their anthemic next single, “I’ll Wait” – which was heard for the first time, yesterday, during the Toronto Blue Jays’ home opener. The video, directed by Christopher Warre Smets, and produced by Black Fawn Creative, was shot in Hamilton, ON, with the band performing in the exciting, vulnerable way fans have come to expect from The Strumbellas.
Produced by Tim Pagnotta (Elle King, Walk the Moon), co-produced and engineered by Brian Phillips, Rattlesnake was recorded on the band’s home turf, at the legendary Bathouse Recording Studio outside of Kingston, ON and at Revolution Recording in Toronto, ON.
“This album is about one main character: this guy, me, who’s out there following his dream to have his music heard, but at the same time, he’s just trying to get home,” says lead singer, Simon Ward. “The reason it’s called Rattlesnake is because it’s about him facing his fears head-on. Shedding his skin, evolving, and realizing he’s got these three kids that he’s responsible for. Little humans, they’re more important than anything. They have a way of really anchoring you.”
The Strumbellas are out promoting their brand new album rattlesnake right now. Check out the dates below.
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
