The Most Serene Republic… and the ever expanding roadtrip

on July 29, 2009, 8:15am

Milton, Ontario band The Most Serene Republic is leaving home (and country) for a whirlwind tour of North America in support of its latest album.

Released on July 14th, …And The Ever Expanding Universe marked the the band’s third album in just four years with label Arts & Crafts. So far, the result has been quite good, with the effort having been called one of the freshest and most expansive of the Toronto pop scene thanks to its well-designed arrangements and glorious harmonies.

MSR will look to duplicate this success on the road beginning in early September. The tour, which runs through October, takes the band through eastern cities such as Boston and Detroit, and as far west as Los Angeles and San Diego. Tour mates include Still Life Still, The Grates and Grand Archives.

While you’re waiting, ease you’re anticipation with of a free download of the album’s first single, “Heavens To Purgatory”. It is available for the price of an email address via arts-crafts.ca.
