Victoria pop trio The Immaculate Machine are ready to head home after an exhausting fall tour schedule spent promoting their latest album, Ones And Zeros. The band spent much of September and October touring North America with Mint Records labelmates The New Pornographers (whose Carl Newman is also Immaculate Machine keyboardist Kathryn Calder's uncle), before headlining their own East Coast tour of Canada. Last week, the band jetted over to the UK to play a couple more shows with the 'Pornographers before returning to Canadian shores for one more cross-Canada jaunt.
The tour, which began on the weekend in Sudbury, will find the group playing in and around Ontario and Quebec before heading back west for a much deserved rest.
The band, which also features guitarist/vocalist Brooke Gallup and drummer/vocalist Luke Kozlowski, have become renowned for their spirited live shows, catchy pop sounds and Doors-like bass player shortage. All three members are currently still students at the University of Victoria, making their heavy touring schedule all the more remarkable.
