THE CANSECOS, Shout Out Out Out Out tour dates in April
The Cansecos take Top 10 in The International Songwriting Competition Shortlist

April 8, 2009

Toronto’s electro-wizards The Cansecos spring out of studio seclusion to hit the road
with Edmonton’s scissor kicking, all-rhythm homies, Shout Out Out Out Out
forming a double bill that will have Canada’s finest electro outfits locked in bass
drenched battles on dance floors from London to Montreal. The usual dressed to
impress enthusiasts are expected to hit the dance floor for the rapture of The
Cansecos.

The Cansecos have earned praise from Pitchfork Media, Uncut Magazine and the
NY Observer for their unique musical soundscapes and visionary production. On
their sophomore release Juices! (Upper Class Recordings) they enlisted the help of
Adam Nunn (Radiohead, Air) at Abbey Road Studios. The result was heavily
textured sounds, layered in 70’s funk rock production that marked a departure from
their debut. The Cansecos remain true and comfortingly familiar, but with an
absolutely modern style all of their own.

In keeping with their visionary antics, The Cansecos initially released a full-length
bootleg version of Juices! Aptly entitled, Juiced! The disco mash-up project, remixed
tracks from Juices! “Raised By Wolves”, “Fight Yellow”, “Seen The Sun Rise” were
ambitiously blended with original disco jams of the ‘70s. Juiced!, available only on
the band’s website and circulated through live shows, peer portals, and blogs, caused
more of a stir than most traditional releases of 2007. That led The Cansecos to
release a 70-minute disco mix tape, Showers. Showers displayed the musical
inspiration behind Juiced! and made the All Music Guide’s Top 10 Mixes of 2008
alongside Santigold, Diplo and Simian Mobile Disco. Both Juiced! and Showers
are still available as free downloads at www.thecansecos.com

The buzz surrounding the back to back releases of Juiced!, Juices! and Showers had
music heads celebrating the redefined concept of an album, as well as attracting
attention from their music peers, which landed The Cansecos back in the studio for
most of 2008 producing and remixing some of the finest artists of the electronic
dance and indie scenes (The Russian Futurists, Sally Shapiro, Black Kids).

Once in a while The Cansecos step away from the keys and knobs of their lab, and
assemble their four-piece lineup; “The Billionaire” and “Generous G” are
writing/production duo Bill Halliday and Gareth Jones with rhythm aces “Princely P”

Paul Prince (bass) and “Stealy” Dan McCormick (drums) to jump on stage and reveal
their live prowess. Next month, The Cansecos are confirmed for one such rare outing
to perform 5-dates with Shout Out Out Out Out and Smalltown DJs. The
Cansecos will be jamming out music from their two studio albums, their disco mash
up Juiced! and live versions of their famed remixes.

This exciting tour announcement comes hot on the heels of the bands newest
accolade, for the most celebrated song-writing competition in the world, The
International Songwriting Competition. The Cansecos “Raised By Wolves”
(Juices! Upper Class Recordings), is short-listed in the top ten finalists for Best
Electronic/Dance Song of 2008. With over 15,000 songs considered by a secret
judging panel stacked with legends (last year’s judges included T-Pain, Robert
Smith, Tom Waits, Black Francis, Weird Al Yankovic, Tiesto) the admiration
bestowed upon The Cansecos is a great honour and accomplishment. The winner of
the 2008 ISC will be announced at the end of April.
