For immediate releaseMontreal, August 13, 2015

Following the release of their debut album, I Become A Shade, Seoul is ready to share more music with their fans, and take their songs on the road. This week, the group released their second mix tape, entitled White Lily, and announced their first headlining North American tour. They will also hit the road with Young Ejecta, STARS, and Rich Aucoin on select dates this fall. Full details are below. Don't miss their shows in Rouyn-Noranda at FME on September 6th, in Quebec City at Le Cercle on October 28th and in Montreal at Bar Le Ritz P.D.B. on October 29th!

Of the new mix, Seoul comments: This mix is a hazy half-hour nod to our most inspiring listens of this year – an eclectic mash of Spoken Word, NYC Industrial, Millennial R&B and Ambient Experimental, featuring an Aaliyah edit.

The Montreal-based trio released I Become A Shade on June 9th via Last Gang Records. The album is separated into three distinct suites, equal parts gauzy dream-pop, reverberant R&B, and speculative ambient, making for an impressive and intoxicating debut. Despite the overwhelming praise that met the group’s first two online releases — Stay With Us and White Morning — and despite the industry chatter that surrounded their first live performance at Pop Montreal 2013, kindergarten classmates Nigel Ward and Julian Flavin, and art school transplant Dexter Garcia remained resolute in fine tuning the dozen songs that would become their official debut: I Become A Shade.

I Become A Shade is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Grand Jury and Last Gang.
