The Wooden Sky- New album in 2012 + hear their new Xmas song

One of my personal favorites, The Wooden Sky, just announced plans for their third full length album. The forthcoming LP titled, Every Child a Daughter, Every Moon a Sun, is due out February 28 on Black Box Recordings. Coinciding with the new album release the Toronto band will be heading out on an extensive North American tour spanning from February to April (tour dates below). The album was largely recorded at Montreal's famous Hotel 2 Tango studio with Howard Bilerman and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, with additional recording taking place in various homes, churches and farms. Singer Gavin Gardiner had this to say on the new work, "everyone had their eyes and ears open searching for new textures to play with. ...What began as a simple collection of nine songs quickly ballooned into an 18-song opus; 13 songs ended up making the record. It did come dangerously close to being a double album."All I know is that if this one is anything like 2009's brilliant If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone we're in for a real treat. Stay tuned for more news about the LP and hopefully a new track being unveiled soon. 
In the meantime get in the Holiday spirit and check out the bands take on the Christmas song, "Christmas All Over Again" which is featured on the Ho-Ho Canada III Christmas compilation. You can download the whole album for free over on The Line of Best Fit.
