Hear for yourself March 2 at the Waverley Hotel. The Deep Sea Gypsies will be special guests.

MINDIL BEACH MARKETS will release their latest album March 2 at the Waverley Hotel.

The songs from the new release by Mindil Beach Markets will leave you awash in sentiments ranging from love of the planet, to love of a party.

Hear for yourself March 2 at the Waverley Hotel. The Deep Sea Gypsies will be special guests.

Mindil is Cam Ainslie (drums), Rod Campbell (vocals/keys), Patrick Codere (vocals/guitar), Daniel DK Kingsbury (vocals/guitar) (vocals/guitar) and Matt Posnikoff (bass/guitar). They captured listeners with the release of their self-titled first album in October 2010.

The band toured the album independently from Vancouver to San Diego, playing 19 shows and handing out 10,000 free copies along the way. The accompanying live show drew the attention of festival organizers across the province.

To date, Mindil Beach has rocked crowds at festivals like Rifflandia, Live at Squamish, The Big Time Out, Victoria Ska Fest and Tall Tree Festival to name a few.

On their latest record, It Might Take Long, scheduled for release March 5, MBM have both refined and beefed up their sound.

Campbell described the album as “less reggae, more rock. We’re really starting to nail down our sound and figure out who we are as a band. However, fans of our diversity will not be disappointed.”

The album was produced and engineered by Sean McLean Carrie (Half Moon Run, Blank Cinema), mixed by Alex ‘Condor’ Aligizakis (Hail the Villain, Bend Sinister, Rude City Riot), and mastered by Brock McFarlane (Winston Hauschild, We are the City).

MBM have booked a cross-Canada tour to coincide with the album’s release in March. The record’s first single, Smoking Gun, hit airwaves Jan. 16.

MBM’s diverse sound and universal appeal has enabled the band to play a wide variety of concerts and festivals, establishing a fan base stretching across all age groups and demographics. To date, MBM has been billed with such acts as Nazareth, Bedouin Soundclash, Del The Funky Homosapien (Hieroglyphics/Gorillaz), Katchafire and Hollerado.
