Future Watch:: Hey Rosetta! - New Album & Tour

Hey Rosetta!

I’ve been a fan of Hey Rosetta! since about 4 or 5 years ago, when someone in Halifax got in touch about us reviewing them and then actually dropped off a physical copy of their re-released EP Plan Your Escape. Both HR and HH were kind of unknown entities then, but my how things have changed. HR have done pretty damn well for themselves over these last few years, and while we are kind of still doing the same ol’ thing around here, we both ended up at the Polaris Gala in 2009: them as performers and shortlisters, us as a grand jurist and a balcony-tweeting, Acker Weed Carrier.


So yes, massive things have happened for one and all! But HR will be turning things up another notch this year, with their sophomore full-length record, Seeds, due out on February 15th, and a big tour planned for both Canadian and US cities over the next 2 months (including a big outdoor show here in Halifax during the Canada Games), it seems safe to say that quite a few new people will be exposed to this Newfoundland bands’ brand of soaring, anthemic rock & roll. And judging from the two sample tracks we’ve been sent over the last few weeks (Yer Spring & Welcome), Tim Baker and his cohorts are keeping the anthemic pedal to the metal on this one.


So get ready to hear plenty of Hey Rosetta! in 2011 folks - no bad thing in my opinion.
