The new album also features the single “Slow Down” which hit #1 on the CBC Radio 3 Top 30 late last year. SRTA worked once again with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) at the legendary recording studio The Warehouse in Vancouver to produce an album that picks up where its heralded predecessor left off. The new album succeeds in capturing the band’s tight and dynamic live sound with an organic and honest production that’s instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. Tough Luck sees the band effortlessly weaving catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements and promises to build upon the impressive pile of accolades and accomplishments from their last release. A new single and video will be released in the coming weeks.
Tough Luck comes on the heels of critically-acclaimed Long Walk Home which amassed 1.7 million streams on Spotify and garnered the trio 2 nominations (Recording of the Year and Best Rock Artist) at last year’s Western Canadian Music Awards and won them 4 awards (Album of the Year / Group of the Year / Pop Recording of the Year / Indie Rock Recording of the Year) at the 2017 Edmonton Music Awards. They also enjoyed radio success with their single “Love Keeps” having reached #1 on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20, #21 on the Canada Alternative Rock Charts reaching an audience of over 4 Million people through commercial radio plays. The band also received a placement for their single "Coming Back" in TV Spots (Edmonton Tourism & Global News) and in a new BBC show Clique.
On stage, Scenic Route to Alaska’s energy is palpable and the fun contagious. Always locked in with a syncopation that can only stem from a collective history, the band bounces from ballads to bangers with ease, leaving a lasting impression on any kind of audience in front of them. Admirably, the new album stays true to the band’s exciting live performances, that will be of particular benefit come to their packed touring schedule in early 2018.
More information on the band’s upcoming release will be announced in the coming weeks. Additional tour dates will be added soon.
