Holy moly! Canadian rock veterans, Econoline Crush have just announced their unexpected return! On hiatus now for around a decade, the band will unveil a brand new single, “Get Out of the Way,” on July 24th. Due out via the indie label Amalien Records, the new sees members Trevor Hurst, Ziggy Sigmund (guitarist, 1997-2002, 2009-present), and drummer Dayvid Swart (Todd Kerns Band), firing on all cylinders and armed with a new full-length album.
Frontman Trevor Hurst, comments, “We decided to re-record ‘Get Out Of The Way’ (2008) to launch our deal with Amalien Records. We think the song suits the times we live in, and helps amplify the voices of those trying to build a better world for everyone. It just felt like the perfect song for this moment in time.”
He adds, “There’s still the industrial sound, but it’s drifted towards more classic elements of rock. We’re evolving into a more organic direction. The songs are taking a lead role.”
In other news, Hurst has been hard at work on a new documentary film, Flatlander, that’s due out in 2021. The concept sees the musician discuss the time between music; he’s now a registered psychiatric nurse. He shares, “I realized what a great gift was bestowed upon us as a band and as individuals, to have this ability to make music and to entertain. I don’t take this for granted. That’s why everybody in the band feels this is not an opportunity to waste.”
