In what is likely a sign of things to come, the indie rock act July Talk has just announced that it’ll perform at a drive-in movie theater in August as a way of promoting its forthcoming album, Pray For It

According to a press release, it’ll be the first event of its kind in Canada. 

“We’re over the moon to announce that we’ll be performing live at a drive-in movie theatre near Toronto,” writes the band in an announcement. “We’ve been working on this idea for some time now, and it feels like it’s going to be a pretty special event. The thought that we will be able to perform and feel the audience’s company again is just too much, we can’t contain our excitement. We’re going to premiere some unreleased music videos and play a full-scale 90-minute live set where the audio is broadcast onto your car radio and the drive-in screens play a live multi-camera feed as well! Car horn applause anyone?!” 

Video content will draw from July Talk’s “extensive and impressive” body of video work, including new videos from Pray For It.

Due to the nature of ever-changing protocols, no further details about ticket packages and event details will be shared at this time. Rest assured, the event will proceed in compliance with government health and social distancing protocols.

For Pray For It, July Talk “commits to the possibility of alternate endings, acknowledging the power of vulnerability as a way to begin again.”  

Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, the Drones, Julia Jacklin), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, Metz), David Plowman (Brendan Canning, Young Clancy, Michael Rault), Milan Sarkadi (Mute Choir, Said The Whale) and Ben Fox (Film Composer) produced the album, and it was mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Cat Power, Andy Shauf).
