Spin Premieres Those Darlins' New 'Canadian-American Murder Ballad'; Darlins Team Up With Heavy Cream for Tour and Split 7-Inch

Posted By on Mon, Oct 1, 2012 at 4:05 PM

If you’ve got Google Alerts set up for Those Darlins and their label Oh Wow Dang, Heavy Cream and their label Infinity Cat, Ty Segall, King Khan or murder, you’re already abreast that Spin posted a new Darlins track this afternoon. It’s called “Summer’s Dead,” and it’s inspired by Winnepeg’s Royal Albert Arms Hotel — which is both the site of a recent show the band performed with King Khan and the site of a ghastly 2003 murder. Not all Canadians are nice and harmless, apparently.

Anywho, the macabre murder ballad (which doesn’t sound remotely balladic, as you can hear for yourself by clicking here) will appear on a split tour 7-inch with Heavy Cream that’s slated for a release on both Oh Wow Dang and Infinity Cat. The Heavy Cream track is called “Prison Shanks.” Probably because prisons are popular hangouts for murders — even in Canada. Nashville’s most active San Francisco garage-rock ally Ty Segall produced “Prison Shanks.”

The Those Darlins/Heavy Cream love fest will continue when the two bands embark on the aptly titled Summer’s Dead Tour at the end of the month. (Dates below.) Turbo Fruits, Bobby Jealousy, Slutever, The Very Knees, Pangea, White Mystery and Royal Bands will also join the jaunt — that’s where you can get these seven deadly inches of heavy, hot wax.
