Trust - Tour dates and album announcement

Trust – Tour dates and album announcement

image002We like to be ahead of the game here at GIITTV, and got in early with Canadian synth gloom merchants Trust by making them a must see at this year’s SXSW. Blown away by them on day one, we had to go back the very next day and make sure it was no mistake, only to find them even more compelling. The link’s HERE if you want a recap. We were doubly lucky to pick up a copy of the north american version of debut album TRST early doors, and out of a year of good music, it has proved to be one of the stayers, getting exponentially better with each trip round the stereo. Yes it’s built on keys, programmers and drums and you could describe it as electro, but it’s a long way from some of the the pretty girl sounds knocking around just now. The beat is driving and there is moody drama oozing desperately down the mic stand in the form of vocalist Robert Alfons.



All of which makes us genuinely excited that the album TRST is getting an official UK release on October 16th on Arts & Crafts/ PIAS. Even better, to mark the occasion, there are live dates, first supporting Yeasayer and then some headliners of their own.
