Stars, the Montreal-based band, has shared a new live video for “Snowy Owl,” the tender closing track of the band’s forthcoming first new album in five years, From Capelton Hill, coming out on May 27th via Last Gang Records / MNRK. From Capelton Hill is Stars’ ninth album and a follow-up to 2017’s There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light.
Campbell says the track is the epilogue to their stories:
“I don’t know what comes after,” he says. “I just make records about other people, and in the end, they turn out to be about me.”
Following a three-song acoustic set recorded for Comedy Bang Bang’s recent 13th-anniversary special, Stars have announced Live From Capelton Hill, a career-spanning release day Livestream where they’ll play new songs and fan favourites, via Bandcamp Live on May 27th; the show begins at 5 pm Eastern and tickets are now on sale, here.
The band will continue virtual festivities on May 31st, beginning with a full album listening party via Tim Burgess’ Twitter Listening Party series at 1 pm Eastern, followed by a Reddit AMA at Indieheads at 2 pm Eastern. Stars’ headlining West Coast tour kicks off June 4th in Vancouver, BC, and includes two June shows at LA’s The Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever (see full tour schedule below).
The new live video follows the studio version of “Snowy Owl” and four other pre-release album singles: “Build A Fire,” Patterns,”, “Capelton Hill” (plus live performance video), and “Pretenders,”. Learn more about previous singles, “Build A Fire” and “Patterns” here.
