Toronto-based band

Since the release of their first full-length album in February, it’s been a busy year for Toronto-based group The Strumbellas. Following an east coast tour earlier in 2012, the band is now making their way across Canada, with a stop planned for Fernie on November 21.

To promote their debut album, My Father and The Hunter, The Strumbella’s have created their very own video game to give audiences a chance to experience their new songs in a very unique way. Scored by the band’s drummer, Jeremy Drury, the game is set to an eight-bit soundtrack of Strumbella songs. Players can make their way through the game’s landscape, drawn by violinist Isabel Ritchie, across the deserts of Ontario, to the big city of Toronto where the band is scheduled to rock out. The retro game allows fans to play as their favorite band member to battle sheriffs, birds, devils, and other characters featured in My Father and The Hunter.

Described as the harvest of seven talented friends, some whiskey, and a few rounds of euchre, My Father and The Hunter is an introspective snapshot of how the band got to where they are today. Harmonies, stomps, hollers, claps, and gang vocals are plentiful as the songs weave their stories throughout the album.

The Strumbellas will play The Northern on Wednesday, November 21. Tickets can be purchased at The Northern beforehand or at the door on the night of the show.
