Bands at Kelowna's Habitat in April

Renowned Toronto independent music company Arts & Crafts is proud to announce a North American tour featuring three of the Toronto-based label's exciting young artists, showcasing across the continent and coming to Kelowna on April 3 at Habitat.

Bands will share stages and rotate slots throughout the tour, collaborating on exclusives and offering fans a unique live experience driven by Arts & Crafts' continued commitment to fostering creativity and discovery.

Los Angeles six-piece NO released their debut album El Prado on Feb. 18, having just premiered the video for first single "Leave The Door Wide Open" and a haunting cover of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne."

2014 JUNO Award nominated Toronto art-rock quartet The Darcys released its latest album Warring in late 2013 to critical acclaim, described by SPIN as a "pretty hybrid of Local Natives and Atoms For Peace" and recently hailed by NYLON as "your new favourite band." Watch recently released videos for Horses Fell and The Pacific Theatre, and hear a banging remix of Born Ruffians’ Rage Flows as well as a lush cover of Drake’s 2013 smash Hold On, We’re Going Home.

Emerging Calgary folk rock outfit Reuben And The Dark just announced the May 27 release of its anticipated debut full-length album Funeral Sky by releasing the video for first single Rolling Stone. Already buoyed by the success of a North American tour with Paper Kites and incredible reaction to Rolling Stone as well as Shoulderblade, 2014 promised to be a break out year for Reuben And The Dark.

The tour package is an extension of Arts & Crafts' long-standing collaborative spirit and is the latest in a tradition of A&C label packages that began with Broken Social Scene, Feist and Stars nearly a decade ago.
