Besnard Lakes

The Besnard Lakes' new album The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night was released earlier this month by Jagjaguwar. Grab an MP3 from that album above.

As previously mentioned, the Canadian band is headlining Bowery Ballroom on May 28th, a show that fellow Canadians Land of Talk will be opening (tickets are on sale). The show is one date of a much larger tour (which Land of Talk is opening just part of). All dates, and some pictures from our BV/M For Montreal day party at SXSW, below...
