The Wooden Sky: Something Hiding For Us in the Night

The Wooden SkyHot off of their Bedrooms and Backstreets Tour and the Canadian release of their second album “If I Don’t Come Home You’ll Know I’m Gone”, Toronto-based outfit The Wooden Sky is excited to be hitting the road with Elliott Brood (Six Shooter) for a string of nine US shows, starting in Seattle October 9th and finishing up at CMJ in NYC October 22nd.

Often compared to the likes of The National and old-school Counting Crows, The Wooden Sky’s new 13-track LP brilliantly sweeps through countless rock and roll subgenres. It is sure to please even the harshest music critics with the deftness of Allman Brothers, the songwriting focus of Wilco, and the experimental sonic cacophony of the Flaming Lips. This career-defining record was composed over months spent living, writing and recording between Toronto and Montreal. The list of people involved the creation of the record is expansive, including some of the band’s oldest friends and newest acquaintances: Heather Kirby (Ohbijou), Debra Jean Creelman (ex-Mother Mother), Howard Billerman (ex-Arcade Fire), Edwin Huizinga (Mars Volta), Adam Kinner (Marathon), and Tyler Belluz.

The Wooden Sky has spent the last few weeks wowing audiences all across Canada, playing unconventional spaces like rooftops, backyards, campfires and parks, and is now pleased to announce this more traditional tour, which officially begins in Canada on September 26th and marks their official foray into America!
