New live Recording from Headlong Hearts - Canadian Shield

 Back on October first Headlong Hearts held their album release party for "What We Call Forever" at Hipposonic Studio here in Vancouver, Canada. The show was a great success, sold out and warmly received and the band made an audio recording of the night. I have been going through the songs and picking the best tracks for the night and mixing the multitrack audio we recorded that evening. 

This song, Canadian Shield, is not available on the debut album and is likely to be the first new single Headlong Hearts records for the next release. Fiddler Hugh Ellenwood wrote this one and the band as quickly adopted it into their live sets as it has proven to be a crowd pleaser. I hope you find it fun as well!

Combine the Victorious - Love Ballad - new Video and single


For the first time, Combine the Victorious has released a new single in partnership with Thorvald Records from Los Angeles, California.  On Feb 11 2022 a double A-side featuring the songs Love Ballad and Thunder was released worldwide.

A massive benefit of this partnership has been the introduction to Steven R. Gilmore, graphic artist extraordinaire (he's done covers for artists such as Skinny Puppy, Grapes of Wrath, A Perfect Circle and countless others) whose art now graces our cover. The incredible image and layout is so engaging and inspiring it seems to elevate the music to new level!

In addition to the new double A side release there is also a new video for the song Love Ballad. Filmed on location at the Isabelle Dunlop Clothing Store the video is a depiction of a fairly typical day for Isabelle. She meets her customer, as portrayed by actress/model Carmel Amit, discusses designing a dress for her and then we see her go to work. The Isabelle Dunlop Clothing Store is featured throughout the video, with loving depiction of the design studio in the back of the shop.
