We are very excited to welcome The Provincial Archive to Black Box's label and management family!

This Edmonton-based indie-pop quartet are known for their quirky sound and intricate instrumental arrangements. They will release an EP, "Hide Like A Secret" on June 10th in Canada as a precursor to their label full-length debut due later this summer.

To celebrate the announcement, the band have unveiled their cover of Elliott Smith's iconic song "Son of Sam" in both video and audio forms. Check out the video above, and download the song for free HERE.

The band is in Toronto for CMW this week, with performances at The Dakota Tavern (Tuesday, 10PM) and Adelaide Hall (Thursday, 9PM). That is followed by a three week tour in Germany in support of their album release via Devil Duck Records.

Stay tuned for more information on the "Hide Like A Secret" EP and their upcoming full length in the days and weeks to come.

We are very excited to announce a couple of exciting additions to our 10X CMW Showcase on May 8th at Adelaide Hall!

And secondly, we're excited to have Canada's very best party DJ, Classified's own DJ IV join us to spin throughout the night. We may have some surprises planned with him as well, which will make this a show you can't afford to miss.
