Published Nov 14, 2018As Devours slowly but surely gains more attention in his hometown of Vancouver, the punk-flirting DIY electro-pop project has signed with Toronto's Artoffact Records for a new album.
As the project of mastermind Jeff Cancade, Devours will follow-up his 2016 debut album Late Bloomer with a sophomore effort next year. While details are still slim, Iconoclast is set to arrive via Artoffact on March 8.
For the unfamiliar, a press release writes the following of Devours:
After experimenting with an electronic pop-rock sound that laid the foundations, Cancade found the Devours sound by mixing in disco, funk, and '80s videogame sounds with a political and nostalgic fury, making for easy-listening that gets less easy the more you listen. Imagine an angsty disco, full of queer energy but laden with existential drama.
