Montreal’s psych-rock band, the Besnard Lakes, announce the release of the new album, The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of The Great Thunderstorm Warnings, out on January 29, 2021.
The 72-minute LP marks the first release via the band’s new labels – Fat Cat Records in the U.S. and Flemish Eye in Canada. Their first single and music video, “Raindrops,“ “details a psychedelic flight through the mind while deep in an altered state. The song lyrically references the death of Mark Hollis from Talk Talk (“Garden of Eden spirited”) and also describes the idea of evolution determining the story of the Garden of Eden.”
On The Besnard Lakes Are The Last Great Thunderstorm Warnings, they contemplate “the darkness of dying and the light on the other side.” After 2016’s A Coliseum Complex Museum, they decided it was time to go their separate ways from their label, leading the band to question whether to actually continue the project at all.
