“We’ve made it so far!” It may be a lyric from one of their tunes, but for The Tourist Company it’s also a factual observation. Given that just over a year ago the band had only played a handful of shows, the group has definitely made leaps and bounds to progress not only their career, but their sound and identity, growing to become one of Vancouver’s most intriguing new acts. With an LP and two EPs under their belts, the group is excited to get out on the road to share their songs, and give audiences a taste of what’s to come. Kicking off on February 27th in Chilliwack, BC, the band will travel east to Ontario, and then head back to Vancouver for a hometown show at Fortune Sound Club (full dates below). Check out the video for their track, Irrepressible Future for a sneak peek at their live performance, and keep an eye out for more news on their upcoming full-length sophomore album!
The Tourist Company has been said to sound like worlds colliding – marrying the heart of storytelling folk alongside indie rock. The four-piece band released their debut album, Brother, Wake Up in 2013 and followed up the record with two EPs in 2014 – the Jordan Klassen produced Space Race, and the acoustic love story, Atlantic. The group toured extensively throughout B.C. and Alberta, including summer festivals Jam In Jubilee, a headlining slot at Harmony Arts Festival, and Khatsalano, won the title of Regional Champion in CBC Music’s Searchlight competition, and earned a Top 3 placement in the highly contested Peak Performance Project; Canada’s largest artist development program.
