Wintersleep’s fourth album, New Inheritors was born on the road. Since the 2007 release of The Juno Award winning Welcome to the Night Sky, Wintersleep has been performing endlessly all over North America, Europe and Asia. “We were touring constantly, so I guess we jammed ideas for this record pretty much everywhere. We have folders with different jams marked down by the cities they were worked on in… LA, Seattle, Milan, Belfast, in Japan, Stellarton Cottage, Hamilton ON… we sorted it out whenever we had time. It came together in Montreal eventually, but yeah, these songs have touring legs.”

Once again produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, Belle and Sebastian), New Inheritors has an ethereal quality that transforms every song. “We really feel that Tony shares the same ideas about music at a fundamental level. He knows the material, where it comes from & where it can go, and really wants to do his best to make sure the right things are brought about.”

The title track, “New Inheritors,” loosely based upon a Nathaniel Hawthorne story called The New Adam and Eve, examines the finitude of the human condition in a post-apocalyptic setting. [killbeat]
