News:: Matt Mays & El Torpedo On Tour

I don't base this on any official facts & figures, but by my calculations, Matt Mays is currently the 2nd most popular export from Cole Harbour Nova Scotia. The young chap holding down the number one spot seems to be doing well for himself. Mays and his band El Torpedo released their sophomore album, Terminal Romance, earlier this summer, and I, amongst others, thought it was a rather solid rock album. Well Mays & Co. have just started out on an extensive Canadian tour (with some US dates added to the mix), so if you'd like to find out how they rock it live, here's your chance.

In fact, the tour is so extensive that if you're in Sydney, Northwest Territories tonight, you can check out Mays & El Torpedo at Smooth Herman's. The only problem there is that Sydney happens to be Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Cape Breton might feel like the Northwest Territories to someone from Toronto, but it is most assuredly part of Nova Scotia. Someone at the PR firm handling Mays' press either has a pretty good sense of humour or their Canadian geography is a tad lacking.

Anyway, now that we've got that Maritime pettiness out of the way, I suggest you check out the video for Tall Trees below (mainly because Mays drives what appears to be a Delorean during the video, which is all right. He drives along Marginal road on the Halifax waterfront, which happens to pass by the Garrison Brewery, maker of some very tasty beer. If anyone reading this happens to be from Garrison and you'd like to work out some kind of sponsorship deal with the hill - we shamelessly accept). Also check out the bands' tour dates and see if they're making a stop near you.
