Canada – May 7 2012
Wintermitts touring coast-to-coast in May/June

Bilingual Vancouver pop outfit touring May 18-June 3 to promote their new album Océans
Vancouver indie-pop band Wintermitts will be touring cities across Canada in late May &
early June to promote their latest album Océans. Called a "jangly, horn-laden love affair
between French Cabaret pop and rain-swept Pacific Northwest folk" (Francois Marchand,
Vancouver Sun), Océans is Wintermitts' most ambitious album to date. Songs move freely
between French and English lyrics, and feature eclectic instrumentation (accordion,
glockenspiel, brass, banjo, and more!) not often found in a contemporary pop context.
Wintermitts’ Océans tour will hit 13 cities over 16 days:

May 18 – Kamloops @ The Art We Are
May 19 – Calgary @ Palomino (Beatroute & CJSF Shakeout 2012)
May 20 – Edmonton @ Wunderbar
May 21 – Regina @ The Artful Dodger (w/ Indigo Joseph)
May 22 – Winnipeg @ Lo Pub (w/ Mitten Claps)
May 24 – Sudbury @ The Townehouse
May 25 – Toronto @ Tranzac (w/ Language Arts)
