Toronto-based indie folk-rock band The Wooden Sky will release their new album Swimming in Strange Waters on April 7th through Nevado Records. Drawing its title from a line in Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel, Dune – “Survival is the ability to swim in strange water” – this will be The Wooden Sky’s fifth full-length record.

“It’s how I filter a lot of things that come in,” says frontman Gavin Gardiner of his songwriting process. “For better or for worse, it’s how I deal with things and how I communicate my feelings.” The Wooden Sky play a few Canadian dates this month before they return to Europe and the UK in February for a series of tour dates.
