The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night

Montreal rockers the Besnard Lakes have always been a little bit difficult to pigeonhole. Their pensive guitar squalls melding easily with gorgeous sun-soaked harmonies. Contextual references aside this is not a derivative band by any stretch. (Not a lot of surfing in Montreal the last time I checked either.) Make no mistake though, this is a band blazing its own trails and earning a devoted fan-base along the way.

Pretty fair to assume the band can expect plenty of new fans for 2010 as a number of band projects begin to see fruition. The band are currently gearing up to release their third full length, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, on March 9th via Outside Music. As well the Besnard Lakes will be heading out on the road in support of the new album, beginning in Toronto on March 11th for a date at Canadian Music Week. The band will make the trip to Austin, TX as well for a stop at SXSW, plus appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on March 23rd.

Full tour dates below:

Need any more proof you need to check this band out… The following teaser was pulled from the Band’s website.

On March 9th of 2010 (March 8th in the UK), Jagjaguwar will release The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, a twisting chronicle of spies, double agents, novelists and aspiring rock gods turned violent. Loyalty, dishonor, love, and hatred are all seen through the eyes of two spies, communicating through short wave in code and fighting a war that may or may not be real.
