The Tony Dekker led atmospheric acoustic project, the Great Lake Swimmers have a new disc coming out March 31st, Lost Channels from Nettwerk Records. The album takes its name from the region: the Lost Channel, which is the passage of water in the Thousand Islands where mysterious disappearances reportedly happened during a battle in 1760. The group found inspiration for the new LP, after having received an invitation to check out the region of Ontario, by a local historian. The band was so taken by the area, that it sat down and wrote songs based on the region and others like it. They also chose to record in unusual locales such as Hammond, N.Y.'s Singer Castle and St. Brendan's Church in Rockport, Ontario.
Lost Channels will follow up 2007's brilliant Ongiara. The band will tour North America in March and April, starting with a string of dates in Eastern Canada.
