Knives may not have your back, but Emily Haines does. She's going on tour in support of her recent release of Knives Don't Have Your Back. Good lookin' out Emily, good lookin' out. She'll be featuring projections from Director Guy Maddin for extra video appeal.
Emily says that the songs were written in different hot spots around North America, like New York, LA, Montreal and Toronto.
“Everywhere I’ve lived while working with Metric, I’ve written songs on the piano and played them for no one. On the advice of a friend, I decided I’d better start recording them before they were forgotten. Four meandering years later I ended up with this collection of songs featuring a few of my favorite people, a group I call The Soft Skeleton.”
Knives Don't Have Your Back was released on September 26th on Last Gang Records.
