It's been a minute since our last update here, but we've got a few pieces of exciting info to share!

Having just completed a great (but COLD!) run across Canada with Twin Forks, Northcote is en route to Europe for their first ever headline tour there. They start in the UK on November 21st, and continue through the UK and Europe until December 13th including shows with Billy The Kid, John K Samson and Broilers.

To celebrate the beginning of the tour, Northcote has released a free EP called "Invisible Diamonds". The release features four tracks - three new ones, and a re-recording of the fan favourite, "Worry". You can download the EP for free right now via NOISETRADE (or in the widget below), or stream it on SOUNDCLOUD.

Limited physical copies will also be available off stage via Xtra Mile Recordings during the European tour. For the full list of tour dates and ticket links, visit NORTHCOTEMUSIC.COM.

If you missed it last week, Lyon was featured on a new Wolf Saga production - a cover of The Strokes "You Only Live Once". The track sat atop HYPE MACHINE for three solid days, generating over 130k plays. If you haven't checked it out yet, give it a spin below, and stand by for new music from Lyon in the coming days!

Coming off an extremely successful tour supporting The Strumbellas in Western Canada, The Provincial Archive are off to Europe for a string of dates alongside Germany's Talking To Turtles.
