Wide Mouth Mason’s eighth album, I Wanna Go With You, will be released digitally through We Are Busy Bodies on October 25, with vinyl and CD to come soon after. Vinyl is limited to 300 copies and is colour in colour. It comes with a download code. Digital pre-order coming soon.
Happy Canada Day! While Wide Mouth Mason perform at the Sandfly Festival as part of Canada Day festivities in Medicine Hat, we thought that a great way to celebrate the day would be through an update to our Gigography from Wide Mouth Mason’s gig in Calgary just over a week ago. In addition to the setlist and performance video of “Midnight Rain”, we’ve added an extra performance video from that evening’s performance as well.
Don’t forget, If you have a gig photos, scanned ticket stubs, gig posters, and other gig-related media that you would be interested in sharing with other Wide Mouth Mason fans via the Wide Mouth Mason Gigography that is always growing (please let us know if we are missing past dates as we are rebuilding our gig lists), contact the Chef de mission!
We’re in the process of changing mailing list mediums. For the Wide Mouth Mason website, there is an option to sign up for site updates as we add content. For major announcements, we have set up an mailing list for when new music is in the offing or tour dates (as opposed to one-off gigs) are being scheduled. To ensure you receive news about major Wide Mouth Mason announcements, make sure you sign up here. Our previous ReverbNation-supported mailing list will be phased out in the near future. New music is definitely coming sooner rather than later (and we hope you love the sound of the new album to come!). In the meantime, we’ll see you on the socials: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
