New Album Out Today!
May 1, 2017 in Artist News
Music can be the revealer of truths, a receiver for enlightenment, and a reveler in merriment. If music fans are lucky, a rare band will embody all three.
Welcome to Bombargo, a fantastic blend of professional musicianship, profound insight, and pleasurable grooves!
Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the award winning Bombargo has been leaving festivals, venues, and dance floors stoked and inspired for nearly two years with their catchy hooks, meticulous beats and infectious personalities. Bombargo brings a vibrant splash of soul to their funk/rock mosaic inspiring crowds to truly feel the music, to resonate with the band and to connect with each other in a sweat-inspired, communally driven, dance flower.
With front man Nathan Thoen's passionate conviction, contagious ‘Jagger like’ dance moves, and vivacious enthusiasm, the group’s combination of raw energy with polished riffs creates a encompassing performance leaving fans feeling both a little bit brighter and a little bit lighter. Co-founding member Spencer Chilliak’s guitar virtuosity sails and soars in and around poignant lyrics and happy-haphazard stage-happenings.
After opening for the likes of Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joel Plaskett, and One Bad Son, releasing the *Back on Main* EP, and two singles and music videos, Bombargo reveals their full length debut record *We Are Bombargo* with their charting single, and music video, “Pour Me Another.” “Pour Me
Another” is based on Thoen’s torrid family history with alcohol and includes his 32 year sober uncle Scott playing the part of “the future self.”
Using Thoen’s videographer skills to the fullest, Bombargo will be releasing an original video for each track of the album creating a multi-sensory, multi-media experience.
The 2017 “We Are Bombargo” Tour, feature a six-piece band, will be making its way through western Canada from May 5th to May 21st.
Bombargo provides the perfect balance of conscious good times and wild energy reminding everyone how magical this life truly is, how each of us have the power to come together, and how our common connectedness can truly make this world, and the next, a better place.
