YOU SAY PARTY SET TO RELEASE NEW SELF-TITLED LP ON FEBRUARY 12TH VIA PAPER BAG RECORDS
Watch the You Say Party album trailer and the Jeff Scheven-directed video for ‘Ignorance’ below.
You Say Party will release their first new album in six years on February 12th. The self-titled album is as far from the scrappy DIY new wave-punk days of their first record, 2005’s Hit the Floor, as possible. Space-like and ambient, dreamy and urgent, You Say Party is introspective, artful, electronic pop. Pre-order the album on CD or vinyl here from Paper Bag Records or here from iTunes.

In 2004, You Say Party played their first punk show in a church basement outside Vancouver, BC. Four years later, they were touring China and Japan on the strength of two acclaimed albums, 2005’s Hit the Floor! and 2007’s Lose All Time. They shifted from new wave-punk into indie pop rock and were poised for breakout, mainstream success with 2009’s award-winning XXXX when tragedy struck. Drummer Devon Clifford collapsed on stage and died suddenly. You Say Party (Becky Ninkovic, Stephen O’Shea, Krista Loewen, and Derek Adam) reunited in 2012 and have spent the last four years slow dancing towards this moment.
You Say Party’s new sound is more expansive and experimental, and while it offers a nod to their past, their legion of fans, and their journey to this moment, it’s also a map pointing the way forward.
