Belvedere Hindsight is the Sixth Sense cover
Long-running Calgary, Alberta punk band Belvedere has released “Good Grief Retreat”, the first single off the upcoming LP “Hindsight is the Sixth Sense”, set for release (digital/CD/vinyl ) on May 14th, 2021, via Thousand Islands Records in North America and Lockjaw Records in Europe and the UK.

Stream the new single, “Good Grief Retreat”, here.

Belvedere’s Steve Rawles says: “This song speaks of the average worker and the system that benefits off their labour. While the rich can hide behind laws, regulations and a corporate veil that doesn't hold them accountable for their actions, the worker never gets ahead and has no chance of closing the wage and lifestyle gap. The Retreat in the title refers to the general populace demanding better conditions”.

“Hindsight is the Sixth Sense” features guest vocalists Roger Lima (Less Than Jake), Rody Walker (Protest The Hero) and Dylan Toews (Wolfrik). The album was recorded at Echo Base Studio in Calgary, produced by Casey Lewis and Steve Rawles, and engineered mixed & mastered by Casey Lewis. Album artwork by Heather Mclean, additional layout by Sebastien Theriault.

Each label is carrying 3 exclusive vinyl variants of the LP, available for pre-order here.

Canadian skate-punk legends Belvedere barely need an introduction. They are heroes of fast, furious, melodic punk, who’ve never lost sight of their roots. 2020 marked the 25th year of the band’s history, but since all of their tours were moved to 2021; the band felt the need to write and record their 6th full-length instalment, “Hindsight is the Sixth Sense”. The album features a furious mix of old and new. The new direction in song writing is attributed to new members Dan Wollach on guitar and Ryan Mumby on bass. The all-familiar speed, the riffs, the insightful lyrics and singalong harmonies are all still there thanks to drummer, Casey Lewis and lead singer & founder, Steve Rawles.

Formed in 1995 and originally never even meant to play a live show, the trailblazing band from Calgary, Alberta quickly grew a reputation on the underground punk scene for their blazing fast speed and melodic vocals.
