Coleman Hell has announced the release of his self-titled debut EP available October 30, 2015 via 604 Records (Canada) as well as being available via Columbia (Worldwide). The EP will be released due to overwhelming demand ahead of Coleman’s debut full-length slotted some time next year. It features 6 tracks including, previously released singles “2 Heads”, “Thumbalina”, and “Take Me Up”. See below for a list of upcoming North American tour dates.
The new EP comes in the wake of the massive success of hit single “2 Heads” which has achieved GOLD certification in Canada and sits at #12 on the iTunes Canada Top Songs chart. The track has surpassed 35 millions streams on Spotify, is #4 on the Much Top 10 Countdown, has over 1 million YouTube views for the official video and over 2.3 million for the lyric video. The track is also enjoying a lot of love at radio; it hit #3 on the Canadian Alternative chart, is #13 at Hot AC, #29 at Top 40, and just climbed to #9 on U.S. Alternative radio.
Hailing from the Toronto artist collective sideways, a venturesome songwriting, production, video & design haven featuring Coleman and longtime friends/collaborators La+ch (who produced “2 Heads” with Coleman), Michah, and Shan Vincent de Paul, the tight-knit creative consortium has paid their dues the past few years offering genre-busting songs and videos that always seem to break new ground. The infectious track “2 Heads” pokes a hole in the denser pop stratosphere as one of the more provocative offerings of 2015 wowing critics and electro-music fans alike and topping music aggregators like Hype Machine and Indie Shuffle soon after its release.
Veering from house and hip hop, to nu-disco and folk-electronica by cleverly fusing beats atop the catchiest of songwriting shreds, Hell has a knack for pushing the boundaries of existing pop frameworks and delivering memorable choruses to boot. Anchored by his inspiring and unorthodox approach, the Thunder Bay (Canada) native has forged a prolific reputation as an adventurous outlier with a diverse palate.
Coleman Hell is gearing up for the highly anticipated release of his debut LP, which will be released on 604 Records in Canada, and via Columbia Records for the rest of the world. More information will be released as it becomes available.
