Two Hours Traffic's specialty has always been unforgettable pop melodies. The award-winning Charlottetown, PEI ensemble released Foolish Blood on February 19, 2013 through Bumstead Records. The Canadian quartet is coming to the U.S. for a small run of shows behind the release, running March 5 to March 10 hitting Detroit, Pittsburgh, Philly, Boston, New York and D.C. Also on the bill is fellow Great White Northerners, Rah Rah.
Over the last few years, Two Hours Traffic has earned a short list nomination for the Polaris Music Prize, come out on top at the East Coast Music Awards, landed over 30 TV show placements (Gossip Girl, 90210, The O.C., Without A Trace, One Tree Hill and more), graced magazine covers and toured across Canada and around the world. THT has sold over 12,500 albums worldwide and 15,000 digital singles in the U.S. alone.
Produced by Darryl Neudorf (New Pornographers, Neko Case, The Sadies) at his Operation Northwoods studio in rural Ontario, Foolish Blood blends straight-out-of-the-garage energy with gorgeous sonic crispness. Every song goes straight for the gut, culminating in a whirlwind of giddy pop bliss.
