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. TOUR DATES: June 15 - Vancouver, BC - China Cloud (Twin River Album Release) June 16 - Kelowna, BC - Fernando's June 17 - Penticton, BC - Voodoo's June 20- 24 - Calgary, AB - Sled Island June 25 - Lethbridge, AB - The Slice (w/ Elliott Brood) June 26 - Regina, SK - The Artful Dodger June 28 - Edmonton, AB - New City June 30 - Vancouver, BC - Princeton Pub (Capitol 6 Album Release) MORE INFO: http://exclaim.ca/News/capitol_6_announce_canadian_tour_with_twin_river

Light Organ Records is pleased to announce the latest signing of Vancouver alt-roots unit Twin River. Twin River is co-fronted by veterans of the local music community, Courtney Ewan and Andy Bishop, who moonlight in solo and other projects, such as Red Cedar, Yukon Blonde, Slim Fathers and White Ash Falls. Though Twin River originated as a duo, it's now a full band, rounded out by the likes of Rebecca Gray (Chains of Love), Malcolm Jack (Sun Wizard and Capitol 6), and Dustin Bromley (Pleasure Cruise, Keep Tidy). Instantly, a listener will notice their penchant for juxtaposing haunting, expressive music with pretty, even up-beat melody. Bishop’s ability to seamlessly combine the heavy riff into simple folk structures is his signature. The smooth and innocent vocal delivery plays well against the more ominous musical backdrop. This sound will no doubt become their trademark as they make their initial impressions in Vancouver and across Canada. Their 4 song EP Rough Gold will be available online and in stores July 10th, via Outside Music.
