Montreal psych-pop quartet The High Dials have been riding a wave of positive press of late in support of their recently released War Of The Wakening Phantoms album. None other than Spin Magazine recently gave the record a glowing review, while the New York Post hailed the band as one of the must-see acts at this year's prestigious South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX. The band has also received continued support from longtime fan Little Steven on his excellent and influential "Underground Garage" radio show, while also topping the Canadian college charts in the process.
No strangers to the road, the band has just completed a US tour with the Brian Jonestown Massacre and are already set to hit the highways for another continent-wide trek. They also found time to fit in a quick trip to the UK to play the "Made In Canada" showcase at Manchester's In The City festival.
