Shotgun Jimmie releases a video for “Fountain,“ the latest single from his new album Transistor Sister 2. Watch it HERE.
Inspired by silent movies, the black and white clip follows Jimmie and his band – By Divine Right‘s José Contreras, Ladyhawk‘s Ryan Peters, and Do Make Say Think‘s Jay Baird – as they prepare to play an album release show at SappyFest in Sackville, NB. As one might expect, both from this gaggle of affable jokesters and the surrounding aura of Sappy at large, “laughter and merriment amongst friends ensues.” The video was shot and directed by You’ve Changed Records mainstay, Colin Medley.
On the heels of this new video, Shotgun Jimmie expands his upcoming tour dates in support of Transistor Sister 2. The first half of the cross-Canada trek sees a solo Jimmie supporting Thrush Hermit on the Western leg of their tour celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Clayton Park. The later half reunites Jimmie with the Transistor Sister 2 backing band for shows throughout Ontario, including a special tour finale at The Tranzac in Toronto, ON.
“Last November, mere hours after wrapping the album’s recording, the band and I played an exclusive preview of Transistor Sister 2 in the front room of Toronto’s Tranzac Club. It was a crowded night of pals, pints and joyous rock n’roll,” Jimmie explains. “Nearly a year later, we’re excited to be returning to The Tranzac’s main stage for the album’s official Toronto release show!”
