From the Promoter
Montreal electronic music duo Adventure Club-Christian Srigley and Leighton James-recently announced the December 2 release of their 2016 full-length debut, Red // Blue, and have now confirmed they will perform at Calgary’s Marquee Beer Market & Stage on Friday, February 3.
“There’s always been a pretty strong dichotomy of bangers and more emotional moments during our live shows,” says Christian Srigley. “In the studio, we started playing off that back-and-forth between the fiery, energetic material, Red, and the soothing and calming, Blue. Rather than choosing one or the other, you feel that pull in both directions.”
Leighton James agrees, “We wanted to showcase our musical abilities in crafting songs you can listen to at night before going to bed as well as songs you can listen to before you go out and rage.”
That dichotomy has defined Canada’s Adventure Club since they first emerged in 2010 and embarked on a wild ride to the upper echelon of electronic music. Along the way, their breakout hit “Wonder” [feat. Kite String Tangle] from the 2013 debut EP Calling All Heroes amassed over 10.8 million Spotify streams and earned a Gold certification in Canada. Meanwhile, they notched 10 HypeMachine #1’s, syncs on MTV’s Teen Wolf and Eye Candy, and created high-profile remixes for Brand New, Thrice, Alexisonfire, and Metric as well as collaborating with Krewella on the hit “Rise & Fall.” In addition to packing houses on their headline Superheroes Anonymous Tour, they ignited stages at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and many more. Expanding the tonal palette, the multi-instrumentalists craft dancefloor-ready music, embracing traditional instruments like guitar, piano, percussion and more.
Holing up in their new creative headquarters, the boys dove headfirst into crafting the vision for Red // Blue over the course of 2016. They introduced the album during the summer, unveiling the ethereal groove and shuffling synths of “Dreams,” boasting vocals from Norwegian chanteuse ELEA and stoking anticipation for the impending body of work. Now, the first official single “Firestorm” [feat. Sara Diamond] builds from lithe guitar, grooving handclaps, and resounding keys into the heavenly, hypnotic refrain, “I’m a firestorm.”
