Winter Gloves Tour With Thunderheist Behind New Digital Release, Release Video

Montreal's Winter Gloves are set to release "A Way To Celebrate," a new digital-only complement to their debut album, "about a girl," which will be available from iTunes on October 6th at a special low price. "A Way To Celebrate" is a reworking of the band's debut LP, about a girl, which included the song, "Invisible," ranked #17 as one of Esquire's "Top 50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To," and caused to call them a "hot Montreal band...wistful keyboard kitsch should please fans of Ra Ra Riot's tightly woven pop songs or Wolf Parade's more ambitious rambles." The digital release is a collection of remixes, live versions, experiments with arrangements and everything that made sense in between, including a recording in a local train station in the band's hometown. Winter Gloves are also releasing their video for 'Party People,' directed by Marie-Eve Lapointe and assisted by Vincent Chalifour, in support of their forthcoming tour.

Winter Gloves has spent the past year taking about a girl on the road across Canada and the US, touring alongside the likes of You Say Party! We Say Die! and Thunderheist, with a solid sprinkling of summer festivals thrown in for good measure. The shape-shifting that happens when you bring a song on the road is an evolution that the band wanted to document; "A Way To Celebrate" is an archive of this time on the road as much as it is a thanks to the band's new fans who have supported the original debut album.

Catch Winter Gloves live as they head out on tour throughout Canada and the US with Thunderheist for the chance to buy a copy of a limited physical pressing that will only be made available at the band's shows!
