THE DEEP DARK WOODS OPEN FIRE IN A NEW VIDEO FOR “18th OF DECEMBER.”

“18th of December” is a song about the high price to pay for following one’s heart, and accepting the consequences of one’s choices. The song taps in to the archetypical restlessness associated with the rambling, roaming life of a musician.

On its surface, the video is a Bonnie & Clyde type bender through the small-towns of Western Canada, shot mainly in a town of 250 people, Mortlach, SK. The Deep Dark Woods are seen playing against type – the usually unassuming musicians transform into a wild, gun-slinging band of outlaws, hunting down two young lovebirds on a crime spree.

DDWs in CBC’s Studio 211 // New Online Store

A month ago The Deep Dark Woods stopped into CBC Toronto’s Studio 211, to perform a few of the cuts from Jubilee. Visit the CBC Music website to stream 5 live studio recordings and watch videos of “18th of December” and “Red, Red Rose”.

The Deep Dark Woods Announce Jubilee

Leave your map and lose your bearings in the swirling sonic forest of The Deep Dark Woods. The band returns from the wilderness with Jubilee, a celebration of community, camaraderie and feverish cabin creativity. With Jubilee, The Deep Dark Woods revel in the jangly, freewheeling days of psychedelic and electric folk while keeping their compass aligned with the magnetic, hypnotic north.

Made in a cabin in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains near Bragg Creek, Alberta, Jubilee journeys through folk and rock history, from California to the UK, from the 1970s to the present day. The album nods to genre pioneers such as The Byrds and Fairport Convention before heading into altogether new territory of soundscapes that bend and fluctuate underfoot. Jubilee moves the yardstick with its rolling layers of specialized keys, organs and analog rarities (e.g., novachord, celesta, vibraphone, and more) first used in the early days of psychedelic synth experimentation, and the results sound at once in and out of modern time. Jubilee was produced by Laurel Canyon-based folk revivalist Jonathan Wilson.

The Deep Dark Woods are Ryan Boldt, Chris Mason, Lucas Goetz, Geoff Hilhorst and newcomer Clayton Linthicum.

The album will be out on Six Shooter in Canada and
Sugar Hill Records in US and beyond.
