The Besnard Lakes are the roaring night

The Besnard Lakes are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Formed by the husband and wife team of Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas.

The band are currently a six-piece centered around the atmospheric songs of Lasek and Goreas, whose expansive sound culls from numerous aspects of rock ‘n’ roll history. It is completed by Kevin Laing, Steve Raegele, Nicole Lizee and Richard White.

Their debut album, Volume I, was released in a limited 1000 copies edition in 2003 and later rereleased in October 2007.

Their sophomore album, The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, was recorded at Lasek’s own Breakglass Studios, with members of fellow canadian bands Stars, The Dears and Godspeed You! Black Emperor/A Silver Mt. Zion making guest appearances.

The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse was on the shortlist for the 2007 Polaris Music Prize.

The Besnard Lakes, has returned, crafting a majestic, sprawling vision of guitar bombast and captivating pop experiments.

On March 9th of 2010 (March 8th in the UK), Jagjaguwar will release The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, a twisting chronicle of spies, double agents, novelists and aspiring rock gods turned violent. Loyalty, dishonor, love, and hatred are all seen through the eyes of two spies, communicating through short wave in code and fighting a war that may or may not be real.

The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night was recorded at Lasek’s Breakglass Studios with a vintage 1968 Neve germanium mixing console used to record portions of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti. The Besnard Lakes Are The Roaring Night is a dark bliss-out that folds the eerie guitar epics of the band’s breakthrough, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse, into a wall of affected drones and atmospherics. The toughened immediacy and grit that gives the form a much-needed shove over the cliffs makes for a haunting, provocative swan dive into the crushing tide.
