Share tours Eastern Canada in support of new album ‘Pedestrian’

By Administrator

Sept. 26 Sackville, NB Struts
Sept. 27 Windsor, NS Spitfire Arms
Sept. 28 Charlottetown, PE Baba's
Sept. 30 Wolfville, NS On the Verge
Oct. 4 Montreal, PQ Barfly (Pop Montreal)
Oct. 5 Peterborough, ON The Spill
Oct. 6 Toronto, ON The Cameron House
Oct. 7 London, ON Alex P. Keaton
Oct. 13 Fredericton, NB Wilser's Room
Oct. 17 Halifax, NS Ginger's Tavern (Halifax Pop Explosion)
Oct. 18 Liverpool, NS Mersey House

With a glowing merger of the folk delivery of Share's debut, Ukulele Tragic, and the electronic heart of Can Can Missile, Pedestrian is both a hybrid and an evolution. Taking an organic sound base and building upon it with samples, synths and programmed beats, the album is an expression that doesn’t bend to the commonality of genre constraints.

From the longing chords of “Continents” to the uneasy rhythms of “Dance Dance,” each track manages to express itself uniquely without alienating the surrounding songs. This creative range culminates with “The Yard." Mixing rolling drums and winding riffs, the song drifts in and out of consciousness like a Harrison/Eno helmed sound experiment.

Originally sprouting from the small town of Chipman, NB, Andrew Sisk's innate curiosity drew him to the soul of Canada's bigger cities. During his explorations of trail and territory, he penned his new stories as songs. After settling in Halifax, NS, he began recording his sentiments, and observations with the help of his old band mate, A.A. Wallace. From this point, the Share project emerged as a true passion for Sisk. With the recent addition of Kyle Cunjak (acoustic double bass) and Nick Cobham (guitar, harmonies) Share is now a dynamic live band. They recently completed a cross Canada tour this past spring which promoted the second album, Can Can Missile.
