ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lands Where Tales Are Tall
(Released Sept 9, 2006 - Just Friends)

"one of the top albums of the year (...) expertly blends retro-sounding pop with a modern sensibility, and it's extremely easy to imagine that if Their Majesties hailed from Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver, they'd be everywhere." - I Heart Music

"All of the rock critic adjectives apply: "catchy, infectious, hooky". Most of all, this band was entertaining. Something that a lot of bands forsake. " -CBC radio 3 (Craig Norris)

"Kings of Pop" - The Chronicle Herald

"This album brims with a boisterous sense of fun, a bratty sense of humour, a clever and fresh point of view, and adept musicianship." - The Coast

"...everything here is ridiculously catchy." - I heart Music


HISTORY
THEIR MAJESTIES they call themselves, and the bees knees, they's is. They used to go by The Porcelain Gods, and wouldn't you know they garnered national attention in late 2004 with their hit EP ‘Emergency Band Meeting'. It ran up the campus charts like a flaming chipmunk, gaining top 5 status at several stations, and gained them a few fans. The lads tightened their belts and slung their packed lunches over their shoulders, bought a shiny red touring vehicle from the local fire department, and took their travellin' menagerie half way across the fine country of Canada, causing all sorts of people to rave mad about their “ explosive display of indie-rock power ” (J. Lapointe) and “ much needed dose of intelligent songwriting and steady hooks ” (Exclaim Magazine)

That was all well and good, but ya can't coast on a 3 song ep forever! So what do you know? The lads hunkered down in an underground bunker/studio, and recorded an album "built on the complexities of a multi-songwriter band and a wide array of influences, [that] never forgets how to rock" (The Coast). "LANDS WHERE TALES ARE TALL" they calls it. Filled with songs of yearning and escapism, disguised as clever pop-rock tunes, the album was released to rave reviews.

SOUND
The trio of Andrew Erskine, Brian O'Reilly, and Daniel Girard launch a rotating attack of guitars, keyboards and vocals, while Niall Skinner's artful beating of the drum skins is set alongside the creative bass lines of Panos Giannoulis. Their sound blends the youthful exuberance of Supergrass, cleverness reminiscent of the Kinks, driving guitars, classically-influenced piano, and, like a sweet cherry topping a chocolate-vanilla sundae, a rhythm section at times as nimble and intuitive as early-era Police.

There you have it, burn your old 45s and lock up your daughters, throw “Lands Where Tales are Tall” by Their Majesties in your disc player and take a trip far, far away.
