Great Lake Swimmers

Available for Shows/Gigs - Confirmed: Apr. 7, 2015 (Awaiting Update)

from Toronto Ontario

A Forest Of Arms is the sixth album from Tony Dekker's Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012's New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker and band mates have pushed their sound significantly, creating some of their most dynamic songs ever recorded.
Those familiar with the decade-long output of Great Lake Swimmers will recognize the thematic threads of beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. The familiar versus the strange theme is also running through this record, both in the instrumentation and in the songwriting ("Zero In The City", "I Was A Wayward Pastel Bay").
