Canadian heavy alt-rock duo cleopatrick release their highly anticipated debut album, BUMMER via the band’s own label Nowhere Special Recordings, distributed by Thirty Tigers. Listen to the album HERE. Alongside the album release, the Cobourg, ON-based two-piece have unveiled the video for their latest single “VICTORIA PARK”.
Vocalist and guitarist Luke Gruntz had this to say about the track, “From the moment we wrote VICTORIA PARK we knew it would be the opening track on BUMMER. It’s the sonic mission statement for our debut album. It’s our thesis. Our first impression. It’s named after a real Victoria Park here in Cobourg, Ontario Canada. A place where Ian and I have both spent countless summer days and nights throughout our lives. It’s a green space that was named after Queen Victoria in an effort to impress the crown, during a time where this town was so young and prosperous that they truly believed they could be chosen as the capital of Canada.
Gruntz continues, “Standing here today in what is now a sleepy rural retirement community, I feel a strange sense of tragedy lingering around this park. In my eyes, it is a monument to a long-lost ambition, and for that reason, it inspires me.”
