Great Lake Swimmers, the Toronto band led by Tony Dekker, have announced the forthcoming release of full-length A Forest Of Arms. The album features 12 songs, recorded over several months in various scattered locations, including Ontario’s Tyendinaga Cavern and caves. It’s hardly the band’s first time recording off the beaten path, but their dedication to variety and adventure is where Great Lake Swimmers find its consistency, allowing their sound to adapt as its members’ tastes and influences evolve while remaining true to the rustic, understated vibe that they began with.
Listen to “Zero In The City,” the first single from A Forest Of Arms, in the player above. A Forest Of Arms is set for release on April 21 via Nettwerk.
