reddit, you helped put us on the map last year by showing one of our videos your much love... We are the Juno Award-winning band, "The Strumbellas", in the middle of a 2 month tour of North America, here to answer your questions... the weirder the...
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
We are Jon, Jeremy, Izzy, Dave, Simon and Darryl - hailing from Toronto, Ontario via Lindsay, Oshawa and Milwaukee.
We released our sophomore album, "We Still Move On Dance Floors" internationally at the beginning of September and are currently on a 2 month tour that will take us through over 30 cities across the US and Canada.
We were awarded the Juno Award (Canadian equivalent of the Grammy's) this year in the Roots and Traditional (Group) Album of the Year category, The SiriusXM Indies' Folk/Roots Artist/Group or Duo of the Year and were Long-Listed in this years Polaris Music Prize.
We released a new homemade video we shot in Chicago a couple weeks ago, have a look here!. Reddit gave us a big hug last year with over 80K views in the first 24 hours of our one-continuous-shot video for End Of An Era
We're currently all in the van together heading to Boston, (Victoria is not with us...), ready to answer your questions.
Oh, yeah... our website with tour dates: thestrumbellas.ca

EDIT: Wow, we had a blast today everyone! Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with us, we really appreciate all the lovely things you said and shared with us, it means a lot to us to know we have wicked fans who really support what we do. We're gearing up for the gig here in Boston tonight and will wrap this up for now.
