They are back! But that said, they never really went anywhere. Doc Walker released his first new song in several years and they are thrilled with it.
Like many industries, the pandemic has hit the entertainment industry in a big way and Chris Thorsteinson, lead singer of the group, says the past 18 months have been tough.
âIt’s been a long year and a half,â commented Thorsteinson. âIt’s been a while but it’s nice to be there again. We had a period in August where we were busy every weekend, but I won’t complain. It was so much fun. to be in front of the fans again because that’s what Dave (Wasyliw) and I are kind of built for. We really missed it. “
The band performed in Swift Current this weekend and also have a show in Winnipeg next month. As for the new song, it’s actually just new to us. âShe Wants What She Wantsâ was actually put in place right before Covid hit, but the group has delayed its release until now. âIt started as a joke when I was recording 80’s Friday because I love songs from the 80’s and early 90’s. I got the idea, the harmonies and some raw ideas. Dave is a writer. so amazing, he took those ideas and turned them into a song. One that has a lot of meaning. Trying to make life the best you can and making good decisions. We get a lot of good feedback on this and it ‘was fun to record. We’ve always tried to have lyrics that have a good story. ”
For now, fans will have to be happy with the one new song, but Thorsteinson says more are on the way and a new album is in the works. The band are working on a remake of an 80s favorite and have recorded several other songs as well. While there is no timeline for when the album will be ready, Thorsteinson commented that it shouldn’t be too long.
