Today, Vancouver’s Belle Game have announced their sophomore album Fear/Nothing slated for release September 8th on Arts & Crafts. Produced by Dave Hamelin (The Stills) and executive producer Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), the 10 track collection is filled with lush compositions, led by the powerful and hypnotic vocals of Andrea Lo with backing vocals from Kevin Drew.
In addition, today the band shared the dynamic 1st single “Spirit”.
Fear/Nothing follows the band’s debut album Ritual Tradition Habit which earned critical praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, while their emotional live performances prompted Paste Magazine to name them one of the “10 Great New Bands of CMJ”.
After performing at Vancouver Folk Festival and Wayhome Festival later this month, Belle Game will hit the road for a full North American tour as lead support for Broken Social Scene (full date listing below).
“Lo’s voice is an expansive, powerful instrument that demands to be noticed” – Pitchfork
“Reminisces upon youthful encounters with narcissism, codependency and habitual lies” – Rolling Stone
