Men I Trust Share New Record, <i>The Untourable Album</i>: Listen

Men I Trust, the Montreal group whose saccharine indie-pop sound has been resonating with listeners since their 2014 self-titled debut, have shared their fourth full-length, The Untourable Album, for free via Bandcamp and streaming services. Written and recorded during the 2020 lockdown, the band prepared the album freely, without the expectation they’d be able to do a full tour around the album (hence the title), commenting via Facebook that they played “as if [they] were suspended in time with no external attachments.” Due to an injury sustained by band member Dragos Chiriac, the album was delayed long enough to see the group able to tour the album after all, rendering its title inaccurate.

The album’s cover pays homage to photographer Lynn Goldsmith, whose book A Day In The Life of Canada featured hundreds of shots of intimate daily Canadian life, serving as a great inspiration to the band. Upon reaching out to Goldsmith, the band was surprised to learn that she was a fan of their music, and she offered them an “indie band price for the love of music” to design the artwork.

Men I Trust have also announced the paradoxically named “Untourable Tour,” which kicks off Sept. 16 in Montreal, and swings around Canada and the U.S. before wrapping up Nov. 5 in Toronto.
