(December 3, 2013 – Toronto, ON) Vancouver’s favourite prog-rockers BEND SINISTER have just revealed that their new studio album Animals will be released on March 11, 2014 through File Under: Music in Canada. Animals, is the follow-up record to BEND SINISTER’s critically acclaimed 2012 release Small Fame. To get a taste of what to expect on the new record, check out the band’s album teaser video (below) and the lead single “Fancy Pants” premiering now via EXCLAIM.CA

Recorded in San Diego with two time Grammy-nominated producer Joe Marlett (Foo Fighters, Queens of The Stone Age), Animals is the sound of a band who decided to take cues from no one but themselves. It’s the result of a band that has figured out how to let go of the shackles of ego and the music industry and release exactly the kind of album they want to release. Ambitious, energetic and uncompromising, it is no surprise that the members of the band consider Animals their strongest work to date.

While continuing with their penchant for infectious melodies mixed with soaring guitar and crushing B3 organ, on their latest album, BEND SINISTER delve into more complex songwriting and gain inspiration from a broader range of genres.

“With this album we tried to say ‘yes’ to everything” cites guitar player Joseph Blood. “As much as possible we let go of any preconceptions over how we think we should sound as a band and just let the songs come out.”

As a result, Animals sees all four members providing input on lyrics, chord changes and arrangement ideas. The influences run rampant, from the blistering British metal of “Thunder and Lightning” to the breezy tongue in cheek pop of “Fancy Pants”, to the sprawling 8 minute epic “Best of you yet”. Listening to BEND SINISTER is like digging through crates of records at a thrift store; Deep Purple and Wilco follow Judas Priest; Harry Nilsson sits next to Thin Lizzy.

Formed in Vancouver, BC, BEND SINISTER is comprised of Dan Moxon (Vocals, Keyboards), Jason Dana (Drummer), Joseph Blood (Guitar) and Matt Rhode (Bass). To date, the band has released three studio albums, three EPs and has toured extensively across North America and Europe with the likes of Awolnation, Hollerado, Archers of Loaf, Bad Religion and Valient Thorr. BEND SINISTER has been nominated for numerous awards including most recently “Best Emerging Artist” (Sirius XM Awards) and “Best Rock Recording” (Western Canadian Music Awards).

In anticipation of their new record, BEND SINISTER will be playing a slew of shows across B.C and Alberta this winter and have just unveiled a North American tour in support of Animals for March/April 2014. The Canadian portion of the tour kicks off in Toronto on March 20th at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern and will wrap up in Calgary on April 6th. For full Canadian tour details see below.
