Award-winning Canadian indie-folk duo The Fugitives have released the brand new Sliding Doors-esque video to Wilderness Years. The song is the second teaser to be taken from the forthcoming albumEverything Will Happen, following the release of the single Ring, which For Folks Sake described as "one of the more gently stunning tracks we've heard in a while".
The Fugitives were once described by a local Vancouver publication as "the missing link between Leonard Cohen and the Pogues". Their debut In Streetlight Communion (2007) was nominated for a 'Pushing the Boundaries' of contemporary roots music at the Canadian Folk Music Award. The follow up long-player,Eccentrically We Love (2010) was hailed by Canada's media as "eclectic and exciting" - See, "poignant" -Uptown and "infectious" - CBC. More recently, (Summer 2013), The Fugitives four-track Bigger Than LuckEP charted internationally on CMJ and rode the !earshot national folk charts for eight solid weeks.
Now the duo release their third album Everything Will Happen on 30th June via Canadian label Light Organ Records. The album includes collaborations from a range of musicians, spanning genres from bluegrass through to jazz and including violin looping prodigy Hannah Epperson, multi-instrumentalist Steve Charles and actor Benjamin Elliot. While production cames from John Critchley (Dan Mangan, Elliot BROOD, Amelia Curran).
The Fugitives have played diverse shows such as Vienna Literary Festival, Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival and Vancouver Jazz Festival while also remaining regulars on the Canadian folk festival circuit. This summer they play a number of UK dates including a slot at Glastonbury Festival and the nearly announced London show at Topolski gallery & bar on 17th June.
