BIG NEWS. 2016. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR, pals. We closed out last year with our release show here in Edmonton and it was amazing. Also, we’re happy to say that our real-life vinyl records are officially out in the world, and you can officially get the new release at your local record store (in Canada). DO IT. It would make us happy. The release show was a real banger:


RADIO
AND We’re starting 2016 with the good news that SONIC102.9 in Edmonton is featuring TPA in the local spotlight for the first bit of the year:
On that note. If you’re anywhere in Canada where you hear us on the airwaves, and you’re picking up what we’re putting down, please take a second to tell the station that we’re better than everything else that they play. 

NEXT SHOW: FEBRUARY 26 @ The Arden Theatre, St. Albert, AB
Last but not least, we’ve got some tour dates up our sleeves for the spring, and we’ll tell you all about them just as soon as possible! Before we announce all of that, our next show is at the most prestigious Arden Theatre in St. Albert, AB and we would like you to be there. We consider it a great honour to be able to play on this stage, and theatre shows are a 100% special good time.

ALL FOR NOW. TALK TO YOU SOON.

BIG NEWS. Release Day. 

Good day friends. Our new songs are in the wild as of Nov. 20th. We've been hearing nice things from people. Exclaim! did a pre-release album stream for us HERE

"a delightful, nostalgic nod to the glory days of mid-'90s geek rock" - Exclaim!

This makes us happy. Here are all of the links you need to find us and the new tunes online (some of these might not work depending on where you live but all should work in Canada and the US):

iTunes | Spotify | Apple Music | Bandcamp

Vinyl copies directly from us are $15 + shipping. They come with an immediate download, and code printed on an insert of the original photo from the cover. Here’s the link to get the vinyl and the download: Vinyl and Download

We're getting things together to play some more in the new year. So, keep your mind open to telepathic messages about tour dates... Or join our mailing list, and we'll randomly send you emails when things get exciting, and then disappear for a while. In the meantime, you should definitely tell everyone you know about our new release, and listen to it. We hope you like it, and we hope to see you.

yrs,
TPA (Craig, Bram, Stephen)
P.S. EDMONTON! come to our RELEASE PARTY and HOLIDAY SHAKER on Dec 18 @ Studio 96
