Miracle Fortress

Montreal producer (aka Graham Van Pelt) has announced a N. American tour with Junior Boys in support of his anticipated sophomore album, Was I The Wave? out May 17th on Secret City Records (Diamond Rings, Plants & Animals). These shows follow his Canadian tour with Shad in May, & will include stops in Toronto, New York, Nashville & Chicago. Confirmed venues & dates after the break.

Acting as composer, arranger, producer, & engineer, Van Pelt here shows more of an electronic side than on his 2007 Polaris Prize-nominated debut Five Roses, which was a fan & industry favorite, gaining critical acclaim from several tastemakers. Was I The Wave? expresses themes of alienation, anonymity, & the desire for intimacy, with the 1st side keeping a deliberately crowded atmosphere, & the 2nd side more open & personal. In support of his upcoming release, has released a Pantha du Prince remix of first single “Raw Spectacle” as a free download.
