CORRIDOR– Announce European dates 
  including Bristol, Leeds, London & Green Man Festival
– Share new video for “Grand cheval”
  animated and directed by Chad VanGaalen

– Album ‘Junior’ out now on Sub Pop

Following the release of their new album ‘Junior’ on Sub Pop last year, Montreal band Corridor have announced Spring European live dates including a UK run and an appearance at Green Man Festival. The dates are preceded by North American dates which include SXSW.
To celebrate, the band have shared an official video for the ‘Junior’ stand-out track “Grand cheval,” directed and animated by label-mate Chad VanGaalen.
Corridor’s Jonathan Robert says of “Grand cheval,” “The song is inspired by a grumpy old man who came to bother us in a park once. He talked about mediocre poetry and philosophies of life while asking us for cigarettes and beers. When we asked him to leave us alone, he became angry, climbed on his high horse (“Grand cheval”) and became this old demagogue belittling the youth.”
And VanGaalen offers this, “I sewed a jacket, pants and hat to rotoscope myself as this alien gatherer. Everything was drawn onto a malfunctioning 15-year old Cintiq. You can buy them for $20 on eBay, although I wouldn’t recommend it. The music made the snow fall up and not down. No matter what I did on Final Cut, it would always fall up. I filled my body and mind with many ingredients in order to go from monocular to trinocular, now my vision is blurry but my tailored clothing feels amazing. I can’t believe it is finished.”
