Canyons of Static - Farewell Shadows

To say we're excited about this album is a drastic understatement. The band from Wisconsin, USA are starting the year of with amazing album. Release date is 27th January 2012, and you can get all details and streams at , but check out what the first critics are saying:

The Silent Ballet: "If this were Post-Rock 101, Canyons of Static would be taking home the A+ and probably the title of “teacher's pet” as well. Farewell Shadows leaves no doubt that this group of musicians has mastered the genre"

Alternative Matter: "This is a record that you can easily immerse yourself in: from the early optimism and expectancy of opening track, Take Heart, through the low key, introspection of the moody Never Alone Again and to the closing beauty of the apposite Drift this is a record that you can and will want to dip into time and again."

Pretty In Noise: "A recommendable, wonderful EP that you should be listening to."

Stereo Board: Canyons of Static almost immediately set the new year alight with their startlingly graceful and extremely accomplished new album "Farewell Shadows"

The first pre-orders will all get a further Canyons of Static item, completely free! Either a previous album/EP or a 7" vinyl single.
