Quickly rising in the music world, Winnipeg quartet Projektor will take the attention and run with it. Sticking to the less populated (and less intimidating) side of the country, Projektor has lined up a short tour of the West, setting its sights ultimately on the sea air and flowers of Victoria.
Continuing to push its 2004 sophomore effort, Young Hearts Fail, the mope rock four-piece currently has five live performances in its future, and a radio interview tonight at 7:30 p.m. CDT (details below). It's entirely possible that more dates will magically appear, so check back to projektormusic.com for constant updates.
Produced by Brandon Friesen, who has won a Juno for his knob-twiddling skills, Projektor's second full-length took its music in a new direction. With more upbeat songs than the group's 2001 debut Red Wolf Glass offered, Young Hearts Fail has helped Projektor get to the top of the heap of western Canadian bands.
