TORONTO, ON (October 23, 2023) Today, certified multi-platinum favourites The Strumbellas, have announced their 2024 North American Part Time Believer Tour in celebration of their next album of the same name due out February 9, 2024 on Glassnote Records. They’ve also shared “My Home is You,” the second single off the forthcoming album out now on all digital platforms, available to stream/buy HERE. The band announced the album earlier this month along with the release of the album’s first single “Hold Me.”

Of getting back out on the road, Dave Ritter, (piano, organ, percussion, and vocals) shares, “We are already in the lab testing ideas to make these the best shows of our career. Can’t wait to see all of your faces and play some new music!” 

“My Home is You” is a fitting song to accompany the band’s return to touring as the song centre’s around being reunited with your loved ones and was written in response to the band coming together for the first-time post-pandemic. Ritter explains, “It was written the first time we’d all been in the same room in a long time, and I remember how great it felt to work and be together again. When I hear it I swear I can hear in the music the feeling of relief and joy I felt in being able to see my bandmates after all that time.” 

The band is equally as excited to reunite with their fans on tour next year and get a chance to play these new tracks, as well as fan favourites, live. 

Since forming in 2008 and releasing their debut album, 2012’s My Father and the Hunter, the two-time JUNO award-winning alternative group have steadily shared follow-ups brimming with folk-tinged gusto, from 2013’s We Still Move on Dance Floors to 2016’s Hope to 2019’s RattlesnakePart Time Believer is a collection that signals The Strumbellas’ grand return and rebirth. 

When live touring came to a standstill, The Strumbellas put every bit of energy into perfecting this album, spending days behind the scenes composing and writing songs. Out of their sessions came nearly 50 tracks, which the band — now with Jimmy Chauveau as lead vocalist — whittled down to the 12 found on Part Time Believer. Shepherding the recording process was producer Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Kaiser Chiefs, Walk the Moon), with additional tracks produced by Keith Varon (Machine Gun Kelly, Lindsey Stirling), Stevie Aiello (Thirty Seconds To Mars), and Dave Schiffman (RHCP, The Killers, Adele).

Packed with poignant lyrics surrounded by bombastic, folk-driven melodies, Part Time Believer continues The Strumbellas’ long-standing tradition of mood-meshing. The anthemic opener “Hold Me” – chosen as this week’s SiriusXM Alt Nation Advanced Placement for its world premiere – is one of the rare Strumbellas love songs, though, in true fashion, it’s tinged with melancholy. “It’s a lot about feeling sad,” Ritter expands. “It’s love and depression, love and dark times and what it means to be loved and need love at your lowest, and what people can mean to each other when they’re down.” 

The Strumbellas 15-year career includes hundreds of millions of streams and millions of monthly listeners across DSPs, multiple Platinum and Gold Records in Canada, and Gold Records in the US, France, Belgium, and Italy, #1 Billboard Alternative Airplay charting, iHeart Awards and performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Now, with the release of Part Time Believer, 2024 is poised to be another successful year.
