Ohbijou: good news/bad news

One of our favorite Toronto bands, Ohbijou, played the old game of good news/bad news with us recently as they unveiled two big announcements via their website. First we'll give you the good news, the band has officially signed on with European label Bella Union, which will ensure their new upcoming disc Beacons will be released to fans overseas. Now comes the bad news in the form of the group having to postpone the albums release date in Canada which was scheduled for next month, as well as their planned Canadian tour in April to handle all the business goings on.

Here's what the band had to say ..."Right now, there are some really great opportunities and changes that have come our way. Unfortunately, in order to make some of those changes and take those opportunities, we have had to make some tough decisions. As a result, we have reluctantly had to postpone the release of our upcoming album Beacons in Canada and the tour out west that we have scheduled for April and May".
Leaving things on an upbeat note, you can download one of 'Beacons' new tracks, "Black Ice" over on their website now if you click here.
