Past song of the week / November 2019

The New Customs
"Chasing Light"

From the album Selling Religion on Government Street

Featured track, available from November 7 to November 15

The New Customs are having a busy season. The indie folk duo kicked off October with the release of their sophomore album, Selling Religion on Government Street, and promptly hit the road for a Western Canada release tour. They'll celebrate the new album with hometown audiences on November 29 at the Tara Theatre. They'll also hit the stage at this year's Crankie Festival on November 10 for the Prairie Kitchen Party, alongside Red Moon Road, Leaf Rapids and more. They'll also stream live across the internets for Live at The Roslyn on November 20. On the horizon, they head to New Orleans for a coveted showcase spot at Folk Alliance International in late January. We've got their single "Chasing Light" for you this week. Press play, check out the whole album, and don't miss The New Customs live.
