Matt Mays & El Torpedo - Terminal Romance
 
I don't know if anyone here has heard these guys, but it may pique the interest of a few. They have a Crazy Horse/Magnolia Electric Co sound, and their new album is scheduled for July. The first single is Tall Trees, and it's on their MySpace

I <3 <3 <3 Matt Mays. Very excited for this one. I'm hoping since I live closer to Canada for part of the year that he might actually tour here sometime.

I have his self-titled album, that someone sent me, I like it but is this much different with El Torpedo?

I don't have his self-titled album....so, I really can't answer that. I do know that used to be in a more country-ish band called The Guthries, who I really enjoy. The El Torpedos stuff is pretty much straight-ahead rock.

Yeah the El Torpedo stuff will be what's on his MySpace page. If you like Lonely Highway Night, City Of Lakes and Hello Highway from his first album, you'd probably like his El Torpedo stuff.

He's touring this summer with Kid Rock PUKE so I'm hoping he does his own headlining tour after.

Seriously? UGH. I guess I should be happy for him, because this will undoubtedly expose him to a larger audience. But, PUKE, I think Matt's too good for that

He toured with Blue Rodeo last year for arena shows, and that was a better fit. I don't do arena shows (except for RA), but he usually does a headlining tour through Canada at smaller venues.

Re: Matt Mays & El Torpedo - Terminal Romance
 
That's what I thought. I'd love to see him somewhere like First Ave or even the 400 Bar.

I hate arena shows almost as much as I hate Kid Rock. Looks like no Matty Mays for me. :(

Ha. Sorry about that. I got an e-mail from them and got all excited. I should have scrolled down farther. :\

It's okay, I think it slipped to the second page. We might be the only ones looking forward to this. :lol

For those who can't wait until tomorrow (or if it's not in stores where you are tomorrow), MuchMusic has the whole album streaming:

Not sure if it's region-locked or not.

According to the following article, this is getting release in the US in September, and a tour (sans Kid Rock) seems likely!

Terminal Romance will be released in the United States on September 30. Matt Mays & El Torpedo will tour incessantly in support of it for the remainder of 2008 and beyond.

Folks, I'd like to inform you all of a change in line up for the summer tour. Since the departure of Tim Baker, and recently bassist Andy Patil, I've decided to call on some old musical friends: Dale Murray and Serge Sampson, who I started with in a group called The Guthries way back when. I also called in a Halifax friend named Damien Moynihan. Damien plays the drums for the young blues great Garrett Mason and I’ve long admired his playing.

Since this is such a new group of guys, I've decided to let the name El Torpedo go. Andy was one of the best performers I've ever seen. Getting to play next to him for seven years was nothing short of a privilege. Tim was the musical anchor of the group since early days. El Torpedo was a great band and a band that I will always be proud of. Adam Baldwin and Jay Smith will continue on and expect to see them at this summer’s gigs.

Things change, the clocks keeps pounding forward. I feel their rhythm and am desired to pound on as well. I'm inspired by newness. Fueled by change. It's like the excitement of finding a new love. The theme of my live show will remain the same. Good friends playing loud rock n' roll together. We look forward to seeing you all this summer.
- Matt.
