|Gulfer Dog Bless Limited Vinyl LP
Gulfer's inception in December of 2011 feels like it occurred a lifetime ago. But that's how it's supposed to feel when the local DIY band is coming up on their sixth release and fifth international tour. Bands like Gulfer simply aren't supposed to last in this world, and they've come too long a way to go unnoticed. Perhaps that's why they just signed to Topshelf Records, Big Scary Monsters and Friend of Mine Records with their second full length record, 'Dog Bless', due in early 2018. Predictably, the new full length from the Montreal-based quartet is their best work yet. It features a trio of three song movements, each punctuated with electronic compositions much unlike the band's previous work. At 12 songs deep, 'Dog Bless' appears ambitious next to its 2015 predecessor 'What Gives'. But the final product matches the ambition in its eloquent delivery of anthemic, sensibly technical emo.
Previous record ' What Gives' championed by both Noisey, Stereogum and Brooklyn Vegan
Band have toured the US with the likes of People Like You (incl performances at Daytrotter + Little Elephant) as well as sold-out shows with PUP in Canada.
Last year they completed an extensive EU tour taking in 8 countries, culminating in the first performance at ArcTanGent Festival.
