Amy MillanAmy Millan

Amy Millan is set to release her sophomore full-length, Masters Of The Burial, on September 8 through Arts and Crafts International. The follow up to her acclaimed 2006 debut, Honey From The Tombs, was recorded earlier this year with renowned producer/sound technician Martin Davis Kinack (Apostle of Hustle/Sarah Harmer/Broken Social Scene) in rural Ontario.
Following the release of that record, Amy will set out on a tour of Canada and the US. That trip brings her to NYC for a Thursday, November 5th show at the Mercury Lounge and a November 6th show at the Bell House. Tickets go on sale for the Mercury Lounge show Friday, August 7th at noon. Bell House tickets are on sale now.

This summer Amy has been playing in Broken Social Scene including at Rothbury and at the July 11th Toronto show that had her back on stage alongside fellow BSS-alums Feist and Emily Haines. She also performed a free solo show at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto on July 25th. The setlist of that show (below) included a cover of Death Cab For Cutie's "I Will Follow You into the Dark" which is a song that also happens to appear on her new album.

Video of that performance, with all tour dates, and the full new album tracklist, below..

i love amy/stars/bss but it really confuses me to why she would include the death cab cover on the album. should've just kept it to the live setting.

"i love amy/stars/bss but it really confuses me to why she would include the death cab cover on the album. should've just kept it to the live setting."

agreed. her own songs are pretty good, and stars are amazing. i have no idea why she would cover that whitebread crap, let alone include it in the album.

"stars are amazing. i have no idea why she would cover that whitebread crap"

So Death Cab is whitebread crap, but Stars isn't?
