Never before seen in Leduc

Never before seen in Leduc, it draws nearer: Shark Infested Daughters is hoping to make a splash playing tracks from the band’s soon to be released new album at a show at Murphy’s Neighbourhood Pub and Eatery in Leduc, Nov. 10.

These Tides, Our Tombs is set to be released Nov. 11 and vocalist Chris Thoresen says the band is excited to get to show Leduc its new songs.

Shark Infested Daughters will also be sharing a stage that night with The Body Politic and Leduc’s Corvus the Crow. “There’s a nice diversity between metals,” said Thoresen.

The new album has been a two-year project for the band and Thoresen says this time around members tried out new techniques and ideas to see what they could come up with. “We really tried to push the envelope and tried to push our ourselves musically.”

“We feel this album is a pretty good show of what we’re capable of,” he added.

To introduce These Tides, Our Tombs Shark Infested Daughters is touring western Canada from Nov. 3 to 13.

“We’re very much so a road dog band,” said Thoresen. “I’m pretty sure we’re all in this band to perform live.”

He adds other activities such as filming and recording are just added bonuses.

For the new album, Shark Infested Daughters sat down and wrote 15 songs over a span of 15 to 16 weeks before choosing the 10 for the album, plus a bonus track. “We cherry picked the best ones,” said Thoresen.

Thoresen says the album covers darker subject matter than what the band has done in the past, with songs speaking to depression, suicide and loss. “We tried to write about things that are relatable.”

Even with the heavy subject matter Thoresen says the Leduc concert will still be a fun affair. The members of Shark Infested Daughters enjoy live performances so much they are not able to keep tough metal personas on stage, says Thoresen. “It’s a lot different live compared to the album.”

Shark Infested Daughters’ most recent release was last year and the band put out its first EP three years ago, followed by a few singles. “We realized we couldn’t keep touring without new material. We jumped the gun on a few songs and put them out to let people know we were cooking up something special.”
