NEWS: Single Mothers North America & European Tour Dates Announced, 'Our Pleasure' LP Out Now

June 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Single Mothers have released their critically acclaimed sophomore LP, Our Pleasure, on Dine Alone Records and Big Scary Monsters (UK/Europe). With global critical acclaim from VICE’s NoiseyCLRVYNTTIDAL, Kerrang!, Exclaim!COLLiDEBrooklynVegan and many more, the band has proven to be a tour de force both on stage and in the studio. An unrelenting live act, the band has announced an international tour with Touche Amore. Taking over stages with their electrifying live show across the US and Europe with Canadian dates coming soon! Full list of dates HERE or see below.

 

After Single Mothers began to implode - the gold rush in Northern Ontario was over and Drew Thomson’s old career as a gold prospector was no longer available to go back to. Through watching his friends go through the coveted ritual of family, marriage, kids and excitement over earning the corner office, Drew suddenly found himself questioning reality. Whether it’s a cyclical fashion trend handed down through generations, social bridge  building and foundational collapses or a lifestyle achievement, it’s all an illusion. The grass is always greener until the dog shits on both lawns. “How do we develop the vocabulary to set ourselves free to follow a new path?” Thomson muses, “People will paint you the colours convenient to them.” Ultimately, this exercise only strengthened his prolific and innate need to create.
