But first, here is a sneak peak of the album art!!
Also, here is a new video of Raising the Dead!!
Montreal’s Folly & The Hunter has signed on with Outside Music and are set to release their sophomore album Tragic Care on April 16th. The album was produced by Dave Smith and Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes) at Breakglass Studios and was mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Half Moon Run, Barr Brothers). Folly & The Hunter will embark on a tour of eastern Canada playing the In The Dead of Winter Festival in Halifax and Shivering Songs Festival in Fredericton, after which they’ll join up with Half Moon Run for a handful of dates in Ontario.
Folly & The Hunter is made of 3 unique individuals that come from a variety of backgrounds that influence the band’s sound. Nick Vallee, the lyricist and vocalist, was born and raised in Vancouver Canada, and moved to Montreal to finish university, but also came to immerse himself in the vibrant local music scene. Laurie Torres, a native Montrealer, has played in bands since she was a teenager, and is proficient in a plethora of instruments including piano, guitar, drums and banjo. Christopher Fox, who grew up in England, also plays a variety of instruments and has been a long time active sound engineer and music producer. Together, as Folly & The Hunter, the band’s sound is steeped in American folk music but heavily influenced by contemporary sounds such as indie pop and post rock.
Outside Music quickly signed Folly & The Hunter after receiving an unsolicited email from the band with a link to Tragic Care. “Jace from The Besnard Lakes referred them to Outside Music and upon first listen, “I knew this was a special record and immediately flew to Montreal to meet them” says label head Evan Newman “It’s rare that a band like this comes along and we’re over the moon to have them on the label”. After releasing their debut album Residents independently, the band are welcoming the opportunity to work with a label ”We are more than happy to sign with Outside. They have a great roster and a very positive reputation on the Canadian scene. We are excited to work with them” says Vallee.

A message to our fans,
We wanted to wish you all a very happy holiday and extend our thanks to all who supported us in 2012. We’ve had a tough year but very productive and positive year and it’s always you guys who give us the inspiration and drive to carry on doing what we do. We hope you all enjoy yourselves over the festive period and we’ll leave you all with the news that we have something exciting to tell you all in the new year.
Roll on 2013, may it bring us all towards where we’d rather be.
Chris, Laurie, Nick, Phil and Nick
We spent most of our time at this instrument petting zoo with our new drummer Nick Scofield who was on the road with us for the first time.
On Tuesday July 24th, we had an interview and a live performance on Montreal CIBL’s 101.5, located in the Quartier des Spectacles.
We had the chance to perform “Tragic Care” and you can also hear a sneak peek of our new and upcoming track “How it Came Down”.
You can listen to the whole interview right here!
Last Thursday night saw us take to the stage as an 8 piece once again with support from Bent by Elephants, Tallahassee and The Milkman’s Union last Thursday.
Brian from Tallahassee was an ex NFL player and showed Laurie and Phil who was boss ( It’s no longer Bruce Springsteen apparently ).
The crowd was really in sing-a-long form including Chris’ mum who was seeing Folly and the Hunter for the first time. In addition we had superb on stage sound thanks to soundman Steve who really went out of his way to make us sound top notch.
We thought we’d offer up a live video of Ghost from the show filmed by our good friend Joelle Rouleau.
We’ve been debating for a while what the direction for the artwork for the new album should be and we have finally come to a unanimous decision. These decisions are always difficult in a band and although there is often a lot of debate in regards to where we should tour, what songs should be included on our records and in this case what direction we should go with the artwork, we always come to an agreement in the end.
We’ve decided to take a more photographic route this time round inspired by some fantastic photographs taken by a newly engaged couple who recently got in contact.
We’ve included a couple of those photos to show you what we found to perfectly incapsulate the subtext of break-ups and new beginnings which is evident from the collection of songs on our upcoming record ‘Watch for Deer at Dawn’.
