SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA

Scenic Route to Alaska presents "How it Feels" from their upcoming album "Tough Luck."

The band announce North America and Europe tour dates

"Tough Luck" due March 9, 2018.

 Since dropping their acclaimed third LP, Long Walk Home, in 2016, the prairie indie outfit has amassed an impressive pile of achievements and accolades at home and abroad. The album, which finds the trio effortlessly weaving catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements, led to label signings and swelling success across Europe and Australia. It also spawned number ones on CBC Radio 2 and 3, two Western Canadian Music Award nods, and numerous TV placements on major networks. Now, the band is ready to build on that success with their upcoming fourth studio album, Tough Luck.

     As they did for Long Walk Home, Scenic Route to Alaska once again entered the studio with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 10 tracks comprising Tough Luck. The album picks up where its heralded predecessor left off, capturing their tight and dynamic live sound with an organic and honest production that’s instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again.

Their new single How It Feels is an impulsive indie rock song about the challenge of finding love, or even a relationship for that matter, while being caught up in the hustle and bustle of touring and life on the road. The song was written after getting home (the same night) from a European tour where the band played 13 shows in 14 days across four countries.

Along with the single, they filmed a crazy wrestling music video, taking their own dream team of Mike Robertson and Cory Johnn to do the directing/filming and had the expertise of the profesional

Wrestler Wrestler, Sean Dunster (Massive Damage).

They will be touring across Canada, and for the first time through the U.S. with showcases at SXSW and the ECMAs, to finally fly over the pond for the European tour.
