It feels so strange to have summer in full swing without any gigs or festivals to keep us connected to you all, so we’re going to do something about it. This weekend, our brand new album, “Mainline,” will be available for purchase at www.thebarrelboys.com, and we will be live-streaming a performance of the A-side to celebrate! The stream will take place Sunday night at 8:00 PM EST. You can find a link to the stream in the “Shows” section of the website.
We’re very excited for everything about the new album - from the songs, to the production, to the artwork. Everyone involved knocked it out of the park on this one! The album was recorded, mixed, and produced by Andrew Collins, mastered by David Travers-Smith, and it features artwork by Jaymie Karn and photography by Jen Squires. We’re also honoured to acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
Until midnight on Sunday July 12, you are able to purchase the album off the homepage of this site. For $10, you can download the album digitally. For $20, you get a digital download, and we will mail you a CD. For $30, you get a digital download, as well as a pre-order of the record on a beautiful translucent red 12” VINYL LP!!! (have we mentioned that we’re pressing vinyl?) Vinyl won’t be available until September, when the album is released on all the major streaming platforms, but the download will get you the music to keep your ears happy until then!
Be sure to place your orders before midnight on Sunday, as this sale is only running for a limited time. We’ll have another in mid-August, but why wait until then?
