Coleman Hell Summerland Release is 100% Fireproof

Coleman Hell is excited to announce his debut LP Summerland will be released on October 14 via 604 Records (Canada) and Columbia Records (Worldwide). The album includes his latest single “Fireproof”, which recently went Gold, as well as the smash hit “2 Heads”, which is now Triple Platinum in Canada and Gold in the US. Says Coleman regarding inspiration for the title, “I found out there is this place called Summerland that Wiccans believe they go when they die. They believe in reincarnation, so it’s like this place between lives.” Watch the album teaser trailer directed by Coleman HERE. A Canadian headlining tour kicks off in Vancouver on November 10. Having just come off a tour supporting Twenty One Pilots, followed by a massive summer festival run, Coleman is excited to get back on the road in support of his debut LP. See below for a full tour routing and track list.
With the 12-track Summerland, he keeps a promise he made to himself to remain unconventional among the cookie-cutter trail of dance pop imitators. The stirring debut album mixes Coleman’s boundary-pushing musical instincts with telling verses that go beyond dancefloor introspection.
“I remember watching this documentary on Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ and how he felt he had gotten away from his roots, away from the things that made him who he was in the first place,” says Coleman.  “I really related to that.”  The always-curious artist then set out to find inspiration in a locale that even surprised him: A return home to Thunder Bay, Ontario, where he grew up prior to – as he puts it – “running away” to Toronto nearly a decade ago.  “I wanted to re-embrace that life, those great summers I remembered, and also get in touch with some of the music that influenced me at that time.”
He ventured out on a cabin retreat for a month-and-a -half to revisit the past and ‘vibe’ on the more intangible workings of Summerland. Him and his collaborators would build bonfires, go fishing, party, and rekindle the memories they shared before heading out all those years ago. “For me this cabin and going back there to reconnect for this album was kind of my Summerland.”
Coleman Hell previously released a self-titled debut EP on 604 Records (Canada) and Columbia (Worldwide) due to overwhelming demand via digital platforms. The EP came in the wake of the massive success of hit single “2 Heads” which has now achieved 3 x Platinum in Canada and Gold in the US while accumulating 80 MILLION Global Spotify Streams to date. The single found incredible success at radio having peaked inside Top 5 at 3 different Canadian radio formats (Alternative, CHR, Hot AC), #11 Canadian AC, and #5 US Alternative, peaked at #1 on Shazam Canada chart and was the #5 most shazamed song in Canada in 2015. The single also topped Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown as well as SiriusXM Grocery List Countdown. The success has also garnered him nominations for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at 2016 JUNO Awards, 3 iHeartRadio MMVA nominations, 3 Nominations at the Canadian Radio Music Awards (Modern Rock, CHR, AC), 2 nominations at the 2015 INDIE Awards (Single of the Year, Pop Artist of the Year) and was the WINNER for Favourite New Artist at last year’s CASBY Awards.
