Mike Angus announces tour dates

Mike Angus, Shameless Records artist from Edmonton and one half of The Wheat Pool’s songwriting brothers, steps out with his first solo LP, Hymns, released earlier this week on July 19.  Listen to the single "Swallow It Whole" at the Shameless Records link above.
Hymns could be described as the hum of the amps once a band has left the stage. The void of an emptying venue as the room goes dark. In between the music and silence, there’s an echo. That’s the moment Angus chose to write Hymns from. The songs were written in Italy, where Angus spent two weeks in a Tuscan farmhouse working on new material. What emerged were sparse, immediate songs reflective of his headspace at the time.

“An unexpected dark gem …offers private, contemplative music of the highest order.  Highly recommended.” No Depression

“Hymns is an accurate description for the collection, which has a spacious, prayer-like quality and would sound beautiful performed in a church.” NOW Magazine
