TOPS prep new LP ‘Sugar at the Gate’ (watch the “Petals” video)


Montreal’s TOPS are back with new album Sugar at the Gate which will be out June 2 via Arbutus. According the press release, the band “lived and recorded at “Glamdale”, a mini-mansion and former brothel located in the Jewel City, Glendale, CA.” The California sun seems to have treated TOPS well as new single “Petals” offers a further refinement of their sparkling early-’80s style pop (with just a dash of ’70s Laurel Canyon). Check out the video, which features Madonna and Michael Jackson impersonators and was directed by singer Jane Penny, below.

The band, whose lineup now includes Sheer Agony’s Jackson Macintosh, will be on tour in Europe in June. All dates are listed below.
