Champion unveils Life is Good from his upcoming album

Almost three years after the release of his third album °1, Champion returns in full force with Life is Good, the first single off his new album Best Seller to be released this spring via Bonsound. The song is available via Bandcamp, iTunes and all the other digital platforms.

The song, a hymn to life and love, reminds us of Champion during his early years. The upbeat music is textured and catchy, and is elevated by the sultry blues voice of singer Lou Laurence, who also co-wrote the lyrics.

This first single is one of three other songs initially composed for his second album Resistance, released in 2009. With this new album, Champion will reconnect with his early musical tastes. Listen and share Life is Good via YouTube.

Dead Obies: the Making of Gesamtkunstwerk

During the production of their three sold-out shows at Phi Centre in October, Dead Obies shot a 21-minute documentary about the creation of Gesamtkunstwerk. This second album was recorded in part in studio and in part in front of a live audience at Phi Centre. The documentary Dead Obies in Gesamtkunstwerk: ein dokumentarfilm is streaming now on YouTube.

The album Gesamtkunstwerk will be released on March 4th via Bonsound. It’s available now for pre-order on Bandcamp and iTunes.

Milk & Bone releases new single Poison

Nominated at this year’s JUNO Awards for Breakthrough Group of the Year, Milk & Bone now unveils Poison via Noisey, a song they’ve been performing live during recent shows.

Produced by Deebs (Toronto) and mixed by Gabriel Gagnon (Montreal), Poison explores a lethal love story. The lyrics describe the inability to shut out thoughts of someone, and loving every second of it despite being in excruciating pain. The song is about knowing you’ve been abandoned and not being ready to let go.

After their show in Toronto on March 5th at Lee’s Palace, Milk & Bone will hit the road for their first ever US tour, which kicks off at SXSW on March 15th. In May, they’ll head on their first European tour.

Radio Radio's Light the Sky out now

The band’s new album once again travels across unique, but familiar, worlds. Songs like Busy and Happy Hustler reference life in the fast lane, while Sweater Weather delves into relationship complexities and Remodel (Mike Holmes) mockingly pays homage to home renovations, a common reality for some in their mid-thirties. The energy is palpable in this joyful album full of rhythms and hip-hop/electro melodies created by Shash’U (Fool’s Gold Records), DJ Champion, J.u.D. and Alex McMahon (who also produced the album).
