The Lovely Feathers Announce East Coast Tour With The Rural Alberta Advantage

Montreal quirky-pop five piece The Lovely Feathers have announced an East Coast tour with Saddle Creek's The Rural Alberta Advantage in support of "Fantasy of the Lot," out now on Sparks Music/Tommy Boy. The tour kicks off in Athens, GA on Tuesday September 29th and finds the band performing at notable venues including the Rock N Roll Hotel in Washington, DC on October 4th, the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA on October 10th, and New York City's famed Bowery Ballroom on October 7th.

"Fantasy of the Lot" was recorded in Montréal's Studio Plateau with Dan Lagace (Stars, Dears, Death from Above) and features eleven new tracks recorded by the five members - Mark Kupfert, Mark Shortt, Richard Yanofsky, David Buzaglo and Ted Suss. The band experimented with low cost tape recordings, transformed dining rooms into recording studios and wrote music anytime, anywhere and the resulting album is one which has fans and critics alike talking. Playboy proclaimed "...they are somehow reminiscent of Vampire Weekend. Or Fugazi playing the twee Sarah Records catalogue" and CMJ praised the new record, calling it "dynamic and expressive." In addition, major mainstream website AOL premiered the music video for the first single "Lowiza" exclusively on their tastemaker music outlet Spinner.

In 2006, The Lovely Feathers released their debut album "Hind Hind Legs" and immediately climbed the indie-rock ranks to become one of THE buzz bands to catch. Yet somehow following their tour with Metric the plans changed and the members went on an "indefinite hiatus" as they went different directions to pursue other opportunities. Now, they have come together once again and The Lovely Feathers are back with reinvigorated energy and refreshed minds.
