Toronto-born, London-based artist Tess Parks will return with her long-awaited new album ‘And Those Who Were Seen Dancing’ on May 20th 2022 via Fuzz Club Records. Following years of international touring and a lengthy list of critically-acclaimed collaborations with Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe in recent years (most recently the duo’s self-titled 2018 LP), the new album will be Parks’ first full-length solo offering since her much-loved debut album, ‘Blood Hot’, was released back in 2013 on Alan McGee’s 359 Music label.

“In my mind, this album is like hopscotch”, Parks says: “These songs were pieced together over time in London, Toronto and Los Angeles with friends and family between August 2019 and March 2021. So many other versions of these songs exist. The recording and final completion of this album took over two years and wow – the lesson I have learned the most is that words are spells. If I didn’t know it before, I know it now for sure. I only want to put good out into the universe.” A growing disillusionment with the state of the world paired with an injury that stopped Parks from being able to play guitar and piano for months meant the album was nearly shelved.

“I really felt discouraged to complete this album”, she recalls: “I stopped listening to music for honestly about a year altogether and turned to painting instead. I really had to convince myself again that it’s important to just share whatever good we can – having faith in ourselves to know that our lights can shine on and on through other people and for other people. The thought of anyone not sharing their art or being shy of anything they create seems like a real tragedy to me. Even if it’s not perfect, you’re capturing a moment.” Recorded over a two year period but with songs, lyrics and ideas dating back over a decade in some form, ‘And Those Who Were Seen Dancing’ is an album full of such moments, people and places.

Ganz besonders freuen wir uns, dass ziemlich genau ein Jahr nach ihrem letzten Besuch, Gwen Dolyn den Support spielen werden. Dieses Mal ohne die Toyboys, wir sind sehr gespannt.
„Die Worte “Grunge, Punk and crazy high emotions” zieren die Spotify-Biografie der Post-Punk-Band Gwen Dolyn und die Toyboys, und spätestens deren neue Debüt-EP „Komm schon!“ beweist: Gefühlstechnisch ist drinnen, was draufsteht. „Komm schon!“ scheint hierbei nicht nur der Name des Werks zu sein, sondern auch das Motto, mit dem die Darmstädterin durchs Leben geht. Mit weniger Grunge-Einflüssen, dafür aber umso mehr Leidenschaft schmettert sie ihre feministischen Ansichten, Emotionen und Überzeugungen auf der EP hinaus in die Welt – und dass ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste. Genauso muss Post-Punk sein.“ (DIFFUS MAGAZIN)
