The Wilderness of Manitoba will be performing in Austin next week and have added another show in addition to their official showcase. They will be playing Canada House (Trinity Hall) on 6th Street East on Saturday, March 17th at noon.

The Wilderness of Manitoba has been invited to perform at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas. The band played Austin on the Rasputina tour last year, but this will be their first time at SXSW. The band’s official showcase is on Thursday, March 15th at the Velveeta Room and they will be onstage at 9:00 PM.
The Wilderness of Manitoba started recording their new album at Revolution Recording in Toronto on January 2nd. The plan is to record eighteen songs and then pick the best eleven or twelve. So, there will enough tracks left over for bonus tracks and maybe even an EP later in the year. For fans of Hymns of Love & Spirits and When You Left The Fire, the band will be recording vocals and overdubs in their basement studio on Delaware Avenue. It’s winter in Canada so expect the return of ambient furnace sounds! They will then move back to Revolution in February to record keyboards and mix.
“Orono Park” is featured on the new Glamour Kills mixtape! You can download the mixtape with your purchase of any specially tagged Glamour Kills clothing at your local Zumiez. Redeem it here with your unique pin code.
