French magazine Longueur d’Ondes has done a review of our latest album, “Tokyo Sessions”.
Originally in French, the review has been translated in English, and is available on our website.
For those of you who might have missed the emergence of this excellent Montreal-based band in 2014, you’ve got to take a catch up session! These Tokyo Sessions (available exclusively on the band’s website) are the deluxe version (16 titles) of their first album “Between Illness and Migration”, released in 2015. And it’s the kind of album that leaves a mark! Led by an inferno rhythm, the work brings the listener in the eye of the storm, in the heart of a tornado of saturated guitars where melodies and languages, French sometimes appearing around the corner, answer each other. The writing is way ahead, paving the roads; the compositions lead us in lands yet unknown. Intense and raging, the work reaches heights not often frequented since the disbandment of At the Drive-In. An album that is dense, moved by an impressive underlying tension.
Must-listens: “1-2-3”, “Empire of Sorrows”, “Anyone”.

A text by Alex in answer to the Manchester events:
Every morning following such a horrifying display of disasters, might they be perpetuated in familiar places or far away, reminds us how fragile gathering peace and communal empathy look like before the implacable nature of hatred… How the price for forgiveness and love seem to be more and more difficult to pay for people of good will… as we are to be facing the most horrible fears and dreads there is, which is to become the same monsters we are now so deeply despising… At least that’s always my personal decision to make.
From the band’s very first EP “And If I Was to Die in the Morning, Would I Still Be Sleeping With You?”, all the way to their latest release “Tokyo Sessions” (a deluxe version of the journey that was “Between Illness and Migration”), including the acoustic album “Vague Souvenir” and a live DVD filmed during a concert in Shanghai, China, the YFE Store holds the band’s complete discography!
Every non-digital order also comes with personal notes from the band members!

To deny anyone’s rights is to deprave everyone from their rights. We might not understand, we might not be comfortable, we might not even agree, but one thing is for sure; the moment we deny equality based on our beliefs or on other people’s differences, we become accomplice of the hatred that each and everyone of us had to face, are facing or will face one day for simply being who we are. By acknowledging who we are, whatever it might be or not, it is to assume what others might be or not as well. Want it or not, we’re all strange, weird or wrong for at least another one. And this is what makes the world a far more captivating place to evolve in than any homogenized dictature created by our fears and what we rebuke. At least, true or not, that’s where I stand… Human rights for all… no exception!!!
