Lots of exciting news coming from The Deep Dark Woods camp! The band is slated to announce the release of their new album in the coming weeks! This will be their fourth full-length album, and first with key/organ wizard Geoff Hilhorst! Stay tuned to 90.5FM and right here at cfcr.ca for the full details, and perhaps a few words from the band!

Besides plotting and planning the album, the Woods will be showcasing new and old ditties, sharing the stage with The Sadies at the Broadway Theatre on June 22nd. They will be appearing at the later 9pm show, so make sure to grab your tickets before it's too late! The band will also appear at a number of prestigious Summer Festivals, including the Edmonton Folk Festival (Edmonton, AB), Folk On the Rocks (Yellowknife, NT), Trout Forest Music Festival (Ear Falls, ON), Harvest Sun Music Festival (Kelwood, MB) and the 1st Annual Wood Mountain Folk Festival (Wood Mountain, SK).

Don't like going out to shows? DDW has it covered. The Neighbors Dog filmed a full-band house concert here in Saskatoon, which will air sometime this fall. Don't like waiting? Watch the teaser below!

Ryan Boldt was also captured performing solo at Pickathon 2010 festival in Portland, Oregon by the guys at liveandbreathing.com!

Looks like another huge year for The Deep Dark Woods, and we here at CFCR are mightily excited to start spinning the new music!
