The new album can be pre-ordered now through MapleMusic.com.
When it came time to record his 5th studio album, roots-rocker Wil Mimnaugh (WiL) had several songs at the ready, including†'Roam'†which was featured in the flagship video for Travel Albertaís award-winning campaign, ĎRemember to Breatheí with over 3 million YouTube views.†With a desire to produce the album himself, WiL enlisted the aide of studio engineer, multi-instrumentalist and owner of Poplar Sound Studio, Jayme Langen. They recorded the track, 'Hold Me On', in a 3-day recording session that cemented their collective wish to forge ahead.
The only thing left to do was to find the funds to record the rest of the album, which was achieved using a crowd-funding platform called FANPUSH. WiLís legion of devoted fans met his funding goal in a matter of days, leaving WiL both humbled and inspired to write a few more songs, eventually settling on 11 tracks, all told.
"These songs just came pouring out of me; they are some of the best I feel I have ever written to date and I'm so grateful that I am now able to record these songs and put the best of what we got on the new record," says WiL.†"Was it a labour of love? Yes, absolutely, and Iím proud of the outcome. Like my career thereís no certainty; of fame, of money, of anything really Ė Iím just in it for the ride (with my gal, of course). Itís bloody scary and thrilling, dark and bright, wondrous and wicked. It's a roller coaster ride. Thatís why this album is called El Paseo†Ė it means ĎThe Rideí in Spanish."
Whether itís speaking to WiLís masterful, passionate, string-breaking live performance, his music career or the songs themselves, all are guaranteed to deliver one hell of a ride!†El Paseo will be released on September 30, 2014 through Cordova Bay Records with Western Canadian Tour Dates starting on September 20th. The full tour schedule is listed below.† Please visit: ibreakstrings.com or download the mobile app via Volu.me/WiL†for the most up-to-date tour listings.
