Calgary, Alberta punks Belvedere continue to roll out tracks off their upcoming LP ‘Hindsight Is The Sixth Sense,’ out May 14 via Thousand Islands Records in North America and Lockjaw Records in Europe and the UK.
Canadian skate-punk legends Belvedere barely are heroes of fast, furious, melodic punk, who’ve never lost sight of their roots. 2020 marked the 25th year since the band formed but due to the… well, you know what… all their silver jubilee tours got canned!
But did that stop them? Hell no! they just hunkered down and wrote a shit load of good songs that you will find on their soon to be released 6th full-length LP, Hindsight Is The Sixth Sense. The album features a furious mix of old and new, with the ‘new’ being attributed to new members Dan Wollach on guitar and Ryan Mumby on bass.
Of their new single Elephant March the band’s mainman, Steve Rawles says, “This was a working title for the song in its beginnings before any lyrics were made. It reminded me of a poem I’d read called The Elephant Poem by John Godfrey Saxe where 6 blind individuals were led to an elephant. Each felt the animal and described it in completely different ways. While each of them was partly right in their description, they were also all completely wrong. Each of us has different needs and wants in our life, but if we’re not honest with ourselves and discover what those needs are, then life might hit you harder than it should.”
