High Ends ready album, play shows (2014)

Yukon Blonde frontman Jeffrey Innes recently launched his new solo project High Ends as an adventurous new songwriting outlet. The resulting debut full-length album, Super Class, will be released August 26 via Dine Alone Records.
Having previously revealed lush Super Class album cut “The Weight,” he’s back to give fans another early taste of the upcoming record with “fun and fascinating” LP cut “Downtown.” Filled with irresistible, ‘80s-inspired analogue synths & an infectious refrain, check out “Downtown” where it premiered with Stereogum, or HERE where it’s available to post and share!
The ten-song LP was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, Louise Burns and The New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, and Ladyhawk’s Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
High Ends will take to the road this spring, including a stint at Sled Island:
