Product Notes

The February March has taken another big step forward with their new album 'City of Glass'. With financial backing from the Swiss label B&C Entertainment, the Vancouver four-piece, previously named 'Formula' recorded the album in February and March 2006 with producer Mark Henning. 'City of Glass' is a collection of 11 songs ranging from the gritty, Springsteen-esque Street Signs, to the organ-drenched epic Something Easy. The album is the product of six months of hard work holed up in an attic in the Vancouver suburbs where the band wrote 50 songs, only selecting the best for recording. With a penchant for brilliant melodies and dense sonic tapestry, the February Marchs unerring pop sensibility draws comparisons to bands such as Snow Patrol, Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, and Coldplay. When it came to the lyrics, Joel, a devout but modest Christian, tackled some difficult personal experiences such as the despair of seeing friends, family members, and fellow down-town east side vancouverites succumb to drug addiction. 'City of Glass is about people and relationships. A lot of the songs deal with the fallout of addictions. But they're definitely not depressing or angry songs. They're about hope, change, and learning from mistakes.' Joel says. 'City of Glass' marks the blossoming of a musical relationship that began when Joel (vocals, guitar) started jamming with brothers Kevin Jones (drums) and Nick Jones (bass) in high school. And now, with the addition of Phil Bell (guitar), from Scarborough, England, the group of twenty-somethings is ready to take their new songs on the road. The February March has polished it's live show over the years having hit the stage at the Telus World Ski and Snowboarding Festival in Whistler, New Music West, The Western Canadian Music Awards, and opening for the succesful Canadian band 'Hedley'. Also, under the name 'Formula', the band received regular rotation on local radio station 99.3 The Fox, making the top 5 with their song 'Race of the rozier' a track from their first EP 'Terror and Romanticism' of which the band managed to sell 2,000 copies independently and at A&B sound. The track also made appearances on Torontos 104.9 The Edge, and Vancouver islands 'The Q' radio station. But with 'City of Glass', Joel is looking ahead. 'We've made a solid record. It deserves to get heard. So we're gonna do our damndest to make that happen. It's time for coldplay to take a break anyway.'
