On February 22nd musician Leeroy Stagger's newest album will be released through Boompa Records. The 11-track sophomore effort is called "Beautiful House", and was produced by fellow Canadian singer/songwriter Danny Michel.
The track-listing of "Beautiful House":
"Just In Case"
"Stupid Love Song"
"Let Her Down"
"Count Me Out"
"I Break Hearts"
"In The Night"

To spread the word about "Beautiful House", Stagger will head out on a fairly extensive tour of the country and also check out SXSW in Austin, Texas. Buzz musician Chad VanGaalen will celebrate the release of "Beautiful House" with Stagger in Victoria on February 18th, and Stagger's buddy Dante DeCaro (formerly of Hot Hot Heat) will play the Vancouver CD release party on the 22nd. March will see Stagger play a series of dates in Ontario and Quebec, including a CMW showcase.
Stagger's debut full-length "Dear Love" hit stores in April 2004, and following the release, the singer toured all corners of the continent. No stranger to the road, the country/rock/punk artist has opened for the likes of Hot Hot Heat, Modest Mouse, and a little band called The Pixies.
