The Strumbellas - Part Time Believer Tour

at The Independent (9pm)
The Strumbellas with Certainly So

Ever since forming in 2008 and releasing their debut album, 2012's My Father and the Hunter, two-time JUNO award-winning alternative group The Strumbellas have steadily released follow-ups containing every ounce of stomping, hand-clapping, alt-country gusto, from 2013's We Still Move on Dance Floors to 2016's Hope to 2019's Rattlesnake. They'll soon round the corner with a brand-new fifth studio album, Part Time Believer, a collection that signals The Strumbellas' grand return and rebirth.

Now with Jimmy Chauveau on board as lead vocalist, The Strumbellas spent the last four years writing, recording, and whittling 50 songs down to 12. Honed by producers Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Kaiser Chiefs), Keith Varon (Machine Gun Kelly), Stevie Aiello (30 Seconds To Mars), and Dave Schiffman (RHCP, The Killers), Part Time Believer continues The Strumbellas' long-standing tradition of blending anthemic, brightly coloured compositions with yearning, contemplative lyrics.

"I think people often feel like things are escaping them, or they're trying to grab on to something -- happiness, gratitude, professional or personal goals -- and for some reason, they just can't get there," says David Ritter, who handles piano, organ, percussion, and vocals. "Even if they get the thing they want, it doesn't feel the way they thought it would. A lot of these songs are about trying to, like, figure out why we're all feeling this way, and how we can find more peace in our lives."
