Slathered in rock and roll riffs and dealing with a case of wanderlust, rock revival heroes Woodhawk, from the Canadian city of Calgary, set out to unleash their debut full-length album ‘Beyond The Sun’ paired with dates across western Canada.
The riff wizards have also just released a video for their single ‘The High Priest’, which showcases their lyricism and fanaticism for musical perfection. Lyrically, the song questions individual power and how people can either use it for good or evil. You can watch the video now at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5g5jTKtEfM
The album is produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) and is slated for release on April 7th. A pre-order of vinyl, CD or digital with an instant download of the first single ‘The High Priest‘ is now available via their Bandcamp at https://woodhawk.bandcamp.com.
“This album has been years in the making and really shows the evolution of the band. We focused hard on not just making good riffs, but good songs. Doing this album, and with Jesse Gander, no less, was a bucket list goal for us. So to be in Vancouver and recording with someone who we truly admire, was something that we feel is reflected in the album.” says vocalist/guitarist Turner Midzain.
After opening for Truckfighters, Yawning Man and We Hunt Buffalo in Calgary, Woodhawk will be hitting the road for their tour of western Canada to quell their hunger for playing shows.
