Have Band, Will Travel. West.

Hello, Alberta.
Nice to see you.
It’s been a long tiiiiiime…

For some of us, it’ll be the first time. But by gum, the Hypochondriacs are coming for you, Alberta! We cannot wait to finally tap our toes on that Western Canada terrain, for y’all to hear. We’ll be strumming/hitting/blowing/rocking in these particular directions:

Thursday, June 13: Calgary – Broken City
Tuesday, June 18: Edmonton – The Rec Room
Fri. – Sat., June 21-22: Lesser SlaveLake – North County Fair

Mountains, lads. That’s where these babies are going.
And speaking of being In The Mountains, we have a new video for you all, courtesy of our friends at Marshall Studios.

 


Take that, you mountain wildlife. RAWR.

Good Night 2018, Sweet Prince. Hello 2019!

Oh, 2018. Good night, you prince of New Brunswick. You king of this here Eastern Coast. The Hypochondriacs loved you so, and you loved us back.

A 2018-farewell message:
“What a year it has been for The Hypos. Thank you so much ALL OF YOU. Thank you to East Coast Music Association for our nomination for Country Album of the year! Thank you Music / Musique NB for all of the nominations and awards! Thanks to everyone who continues to support live music and help put food in all of our bellies. We are humbled and feel very VERY loved. We are very excited to see what 2019 has in store. See you all soon.”

And see you all soon in 2019, we shall indeed! Bathurst, can’t wait to meet you. Halifax, ol’ buddy ol’ pal, you’re the first exit on the right. Westwardly folks? We miss you — you’re out there on the horizon. Lord knows we love a pretty setting sun.

Holy smokes.

We’re still staggering a bit from the end of October. Wind-swept and wowed, we walked away from MNB Festival 506 with 4 awards won, out of 6 nominations:

Album of the Year – The Hypochondriacs In 3/4
SOCAN Song of the Year – In 3/4 (Josh Bravener)
Emerging Artist of the Year
Country Artist of the Year

The nominees in these categories were nothing to sneeze at. We’re so darned appreciative and thankful for the recognition, and the experiences we had at Festival 506. We spoke with some fantastic people, shared the stage with stellar ensembles, and generally allowed ourselves to feel a wee bit proud. Oh blustery Caraquet, you blew our minds & hearts.

Got those statuettes set up on the ol’ garage mantel, right where we can look to them for love and encouragement as we get crackin’ on new music!

Mon Dieu. Merçi Merçi Merçi beaucoup, once again.
