Yukon Blonde frontman Jeffrey Innes recently launched his new solo project High Ends as an adventurous new songwriting outlet. Prompted by an excess of time off the road and a burst of creativity, Innes took to an array of analogue synthesizers and wrote the majority of what would become Super Class fairly quickly. The resulting debut full-length album will be released October 7th via Dine Alone Records.
Having previously revealed lush album cut “The Weight” and the infectious “Downtown,” High Ends has now revealed the mid-summer psych-rock anthem “Intoxicated” strapped with rhythmic shifts and a catchy melody.

The ten-song LP was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, Louise Burns and The New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, and Ladyhawk’s Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
Watch for Canadian fall tour dates to be announced soon.
