Beloved Vancouver-based Limblifter have announced details for the upcoming release of Pacific Milk. Produced by Ryan Dahle at recRoom and Greenhouse Studios in East Vancouver, the band’s 4th studio LP features 13 freshly minted tracks and will be released via re-recordings/We Are Busy Bodies on April 7, 2015. Fans can get a sneak peak of the LP by way of the infectious first single ”Dopamine” here. See below for a list of just-announced Canadian tour dates.
Originally formed by talented brothers Ryan Dahle and Kurt Dahle as a side project from their main band, Age of Electric, Limblifter has managed to circumvent the pigeonhole prone music industry to prevail uncategorized with a hard-core fan base intact. With Dahle’s driving guitar lines, distinctive vocals, and poignant, sometimes uncomfortably honest, lyrics as the anchor, the continual re-invention and revolving door of some of Canada’s best musicians have kept Dahle’s vision evolving. The current line-up features Ryan (vox/guitar), Megan Bradfield, (bass), Brent Follett (drums), and Greg MacDonald (Keys).
Limblifter has provided a springboard and served as a template and inspiration to countless rock and pop bands. Current and ex-members of the band’s camp have been or are members of (in-alphabetical order): Age of Electric, Alarmbell, Attics and Cellars, The Black Halos, Black Mountain, Brundlefly, Blood Meridian, By a Thread, Change of Heart, C’mon, Fancey, A.C. Newman, The Salteens, Spanking Betty, Sparrow, The Spitfires, Matthew Good, Mounties, The New Pornographers, Small Sins and Sloan.
Limblifter has amassed some impressive accolades since their inception, including JUNO nods for Alternative Album of the Year, Breakthrough Group of the Year, five top-charting Canadian radio hits including “Screwed It Up”, “Ariel vs. Lotus”, “Wake Up to the Sun”, 20+ videos, and 3 independent full-length albums. Dahle has also been a recurring collaborative force behind countless Can-music forays from songwriting with k-os and producing his BLack on BLonde double LP, to producing and songwriting with Dustin Bentall and Hot Hot Heat. More recently, Dahle’s music, songwriting, and personality are showcased as part of the chart-topping supergroup project Mounties, alongside Hawksley Workman and Steve Bays of Hot Hot Heat.
