We Are The City to livestream the making of their third album!
For fans of: Deerhoof, The Flaming Lips, Maps & Atlases 
“We Are the City have simultaneously made one of 2015’s better art-pop debut albums.” – Drowned in Sound

 “…billowing, headily inventive music…” – Clash


“…swirling psych, pristine chart-worthy hooks and dreamy atmospherics…” – The Line of Best Fit

Canadian experimental pop-rockers We Are The City will invite fans into the studio as they record their third full-length album. The live feed will be broadcast 24/7 with the session starting last night at 8pm GMT via the band’s website

The final album will be released almost immediately upon its completion via Sinnbus (UK/Europe), Tooth & Nail(USA), Boompa (Canada) and in conjunction with a month-long U.S. tour. The three-piece have already recorded one track, Keep On Dancing, which they released as a single last month and the song will be joined by seven other tracks, written and recorded during the broadcast, as the band provides fans unprecedented access, offering them the chance to witness the creative process in its entirety.

We Are The City will also embark on a European tour in early 2016. A recent documentary about the band, Whether You Care Or Not, was filmed while they were on the road in Europe earlier this year and perfectly captures the bands brilliance. You can watch the documentary on We Are The City’s YouTube page.

We Are The City, who are comprised of long-time high school friends Cayne McKenzie (vocals/keyboards), Andrew Huculiak (drums), and David Menzel (guitar), will be holed up in a recording studio in an undisclosed location, as they work through what will be their third full-length album, for the next few weeks – the Vancouver, BC trio, illustrating their willingness to engage in the unexpected, something they have continuously demonstrated throughout their short career. With this recording, the band aim to capture an impulsive and experimental approach with the intention of surpassing the work they have previously created.

The forthcoming album follows hot on the heels of the international release of their acclaimed sophomore LP,Violent, and its corresponding feature full-length film, which was written by the band, and filmed in Norway byAmazing Factory Productions. The film has garnered critical acclaim during its appearances on the film festival circuit over the past year, receiving a Perspective Canada Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, screenings at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (world premiere), San Sebastían International Film Festival, Los Cabos Film Festival, as well as winning Best Canadian Film and Best BC Film at Vancouver International Film Festival.
