Back with their seventh studio album, Dance and Cry (out November 2 from Universal Music Canada), Mother Mother has announced their 2019 North American Tour. The Dance and Cry Tour is the band’s most extensive to date, kicking off in the US on January 12 and hitting 40 cities across the continent.

“Now for our favourite part, playing da music LIVE. We love it all, writing it, making it, adorning it with art, but it’s letting the songs unfurl into the open air with all of you that truly makes this a dream job,” said Ryan Guldemond. “Can’t wait to bring the songs of Dance and Cry to a venue near you.”
The Vancouver-based band’s new album features 12-tracks, all of which were written by lead singer Ryan Guldemond and produced by Guldemond and Ben Kaplan. The songs on Dance and Cry relate back to an organic, stripped-down sound that reflects the bands earlier material and share themes of survival, self-reflection, sorrow and happiness. “Get Up” the lead single off the album has been met with much fanfare, impressively rocketing into the top 5 and nabbing the title of #1 most added song at Canada Alternative Rock radio in its first week of release. Check out the music video for the single directed by Connor McGuire and shot in Vancouver HERE.
The Juno and MMVA nominated Vancouver-based band, comprised of Ryan Guldemond, Molly Guldemond, Jasmin Parkin, Ali Siadat and Mike Young, has had a whirlwind decade; garnering six top 10 singles on the alt-rock Canadian charts and 41 million streams and counting on digital platforms.
The band’s 2017 album No Culture, produced “The Drugs” a #1 single on the Alt Rock charts in Canada for three consecutive weeks. The alt-rockers first earned critical acclaim with their debut albums Touch Up (2007) and O My Heart (2008). The releases that followed, Eureka (2011) and The Sticks (2012) delivered the top 5 radio hits “The Stand”, “Bit By Bit” and “Let’s Fall In Love”, making the band the second most aired alternative act in Canada in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 they racked up more hits with “Get Out The Way”, “Monkey Tree” and “Modern Love” from their much-lauded record Very Good Bad Thing. The band has also found success on the road, most recent tours include sold-out headline dates across North America, selling out the historic Massey Hall, and a record-breaking five consecutive sold-out shows at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
Said The Whale will be opening the show. Said The Whale’s music is pure West Coast. There’s rich harmonies drawn from California pop, crunchy guitars rooted in the lineage of Pacific Northwest indie rock, and naturalistic lyrics inspired by the water and mountains of their hometown of Vancouver. Having spent a more than a decade together, the JUNO Award-winning trio of Tyler Bancroft (vocals/guitar), Ben Worcester (vocals/guitar) and Jaycelyn Brown (keyboards) have perfected a big-hearted sound that’s warmly organic and filled with pop hooks.
