Vancouver-based Yukon Blonde have debuted a brand new video for their single "Water" with Paste taken from their recently released Fire//Water EP on Dine Alone Records (Tokyo Police Club, Neon Indian). Directed by Amazing Factory Productions the video for "Water" was shot on the plains of their native Vancouver, and features the band out of luck, time, and their most vital resource. The quartet continues to support the EP on an extensive North American fall tour including over 60 dates where fans can purchase a vinyl copy in either fire orange or water blue.

Performing their way down to the states this weekend, Yukon Blonde will appear in NYC for a special one-off Halloween set before returning to Canada for early November dates. The band will be transforming their beards into waxed and groomed mustaches in support this year's Movember campaign. Catch their new Movember look and rumored Village People attire as they celebrated the holiday and raise general awareness for men's wellness and prostate health. 

Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Ladyhawk) the four song follow up to the quartet's Polaris and WCMA award nominated debut LP was written partially while on the road, and partially while off the road at a cottage in the Comox Valley (BC). The band recorded a total of 15 songs over the course of the summer, and  the remaining 11 tracks will be featured on their sophomore LP in early 2012.

Yukon Blonde's career has so far been marked by their on-the-road ethic. Last fall they embarked on a 30+ date tour supporting Good Old War, as well as several headlining runs down each coast. This summer the young B.C. band played at Milwaukee Summerfest with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and the last year and a half has seen them rack up nonstop tour mileage both in North America, and Europe, including festivals such as SXSW, CMJ and Popkomm Festival in Berlin along the way. Make sure to check them out this fall as they wind through the entire country.
