"Chrome Eyelids"

From the album Cannonballs, Cannonballs

Featured track, available from April 29 to May 6

Boats is launching Cannonballs, Cannonballs. The indie pop outfit celebrates the release of its sophomore effort, appropriately with an opening set by Cannon Bros. and, perhaps surprisingly, with an Extreme Spelling Bee Championship. Think you've got what it takes? Check out the party at the West End Cultural Centre on May 1 and find out. There will be prizes.

Currently featured in MuchMusic's First Spin and already in the #1 spot on UMFM's charts, the album was recorded at Prairie Recording Co. by Ryan McVeigh, who helmed Boats' acclaimed 2007 debut, Intercontinental Champion. Download your free mp3 of "Chrome Eyelids" off the new album, available in The Loudspeaker until May 6. And practice your spelling.
