Toronto, ON – February 27, 2019 – Showing no signs of slowing down following the February 15th release of their new full-length album, Town, Long Range Hustle now share the music video for their latest single, Carry Us. Filmed at Pursuit OCR Indoor Obstacle Course, the video depicts the importance of young friendships and finding joy in life with those who help get us through the days. Watch the colourful and fun video here.
“Carry Us is about leaning on your friends when you need them most, so for our latest video we leaned on the talents of some up-and-coming Gen Z actors,” says vocalist/guitarist/violinist, Paul Brogee. “The friendships you forge as a teenager are some of the most vivid and intense of your life, so it just felt appropriate to have a younger generation explore the themes of the song with us.”
The band has kicked off a cross Canada tour this past weekend, after a stellar showing at Folk Alliance International in Montreal. The western Canada leg will see the band share stages with tour-mates, Tourist Company, before they return home to Ontario for a string of shows through March, including a showcase at JUNOfest in London.
The tour will give fans an opportunity to hear live renditions of some of the songs found on the band’s new album, Town. The album’s tracks have seen warm support from CBC Radio and campus stations across the country, while songs have landed on Spotify Canada’s New Music Friday, Rock Your Block, and Renegade Folk.
From a sweat soaked club to a breezy festival stage, Long Range Hustle brings the warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies, in spades. A mix of high school and summer camp counsellor tenures brought the core of this southern Ontario five-piece together – Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin), Jay Foster (vocals, piano), Mike Brogee (bass, vocals), and AJ Fisico (drums, vocals) with Ryan Pritchard (guitar) solidifying the line up in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but all share a common love for songwriting and performing. Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, where they’ve shared stages with Arkells, The Glorious Sons, Matt Mays, and Big Wreck, and delighted hometown crowds with month-long residencies at Toronto’s Dakota Tavern.
