Second Tangiers Album On Its Way

Published: 2004-04-23
Canadian indie band Tangiers has finished recording the follow up to 2003's 'Hot New Spirits' and will drop their new album on May 25th. The sophomore effort has been christened 'Never Bring You Pleasure' and will be released on Sonic Unyon records, the same label that released their debut. Tangiers will be playing at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on June 4th, to celebrate the release of 'Never Bring You Pleasure'.

The line-up of Tangiers has been shuffled around a bit in the past year, with the return of Shelton Deverell and former Guided By Voices member Jon McCann adding his skills behind a kit to the album. Despite the change in members, Tangiers is still bringing the dynamic garage rock of their debut album with them into their newest effort.

Often compared to the Rolling Stones, the members of Tangiers are doing their best to bring good old rock and roll back to the radio waves. The band accomplished their goal when they stayed at the top of the Canadian indie charts for two months, and stayed within the top 5 for the rest of 2003 with 'Hot New Spirits'. All of the songs on their debut album were under three minutes long, the first single 'Keep The Living Bodies Warm' lasting only two minutes and thirty-five seconds. 'Hot New Spirits' contained blasts of pure energy that kept the listener on their toes for the entire length of the record, a boost every person can use once and a while.

Available for download on the band's page at is a song from the new album called 'Ro Ro Roland'.

Tangiers will be performing on these dates:

April 22 Oshawa – Le Scratch
April 23 Peterborough – Club Vibe
June 4 Toronto – Horseshoe Tavern (cd release show)
