The upcoming Capitol 6/Twin River tour stands to relieve the regular struggles of summertime humidity across Canada. Of course anyone from coast to coast knows that the only pairing for sweat and sunburns is filling up a plastic cup with the rich sound of picks on nickel-wounds, coupled with the crooning of fine songwriters. "From the outer reaches of space straight to the prairies, Twin River are looking forward to spreading our cosmic country jams. Can we crash on your couch?" requests Andy Bishop. He, along with fellow impresario Malcolm Jack of Capitol 6, are unmatched in their skills, and locking arms for this tour, they promise to make a hot night worth remembering for any in attendance. “All I gotta say is Capitol 6 is tooo stoked for tour”, exclaims Jack, “We're never coming back. The new line-up is ruuuuling!” Beginning in Vancouver with the Twin River album release, and ending in Vancouver for the Capitol 6 album release, the tour will cruise through the Rockies and prairies with treats in between like a show with Elliott Brood in Lethbridge, and Andy’s other band White Ash Falls opening on select dates.

Following up on the Captain Rehab EP and the Fever 7" single, Vancouver psych-pop act Capitol 6 are releasing their debut LP Pretty Lost on June 12th as a double b-side on Light Organ Records available on LP, CD or limited edition silk screen poster with download code.  Pretty Lost showcases the band moving away from their scrappy beginnings and into jangly garage-pop, following in the footsteps of contemporary paisley-punks like The Growlers, Fresh & Onlys, and Crystal Stilts.  It was recorded in early 2012 with Felix Fung (Chains Of Love / Dead Ghosts) and mixed with Colin Stewart (Black Mountain / Sleepy Sun).  Catch Capitol 6 on tour across Canada this summer.  Tour dates announced soon.
