Our new LP, A Coliseum Complex Museum, is out today on Jagjaguwar and Outside Music!
Hey all, big news today!
We are releasing not one, but two albums in the upcoming months! We are delighted to share all this new music with you.
Our new LP, ‘A Coliseum Complex Museum’, will be out on January 22 on Jagjaguwar and Outside Music (in Canada)
A limited number of deluxe album pre-orders will include limited edition white colored vinyl and a metal sigil, hand-crafted by Olga so get yours now while they last! You can pre-order in the following ways:
Before that, we will release the song ‘Golden Lion’, along with two new, non-album tracks on Nov 13, also on Jagjaguwar and Outside Music (in Canada)
- Here’s a first listen to ‘Golden Lion’:
- …and a video of our 17-piece band interpretation of it
- You can preorder the 12” vinyl, with two new exclusive tracks
- You can also download the song on itunes
One thing we’ve always wanted to do is to perform live for you an entirely faithful rendition of our songs as they exist on the albums. This means all the strings, horns, keys, guitars, percussion, vibraphone, backing vocals, etc. you know and love will be performed as they were recorded. Featuring friends from all over the Montreal music scene. Come freak out with us.
It’s all happening during POP Montreal on September 18th and tickets are available on the 10th over here: https://tickets-ca.ticketfly.com/event/TheBesnardLakes

Greetings friends, fans and family of your Bezzie Mates,
How’s it feel for you so far? Feeling the love? Well from our end things are going just swimmingly! We have begun the recording of our next album and based on what’s being laid down it’s going to be a banger. And you can trust our opinion as we’re feeling it first hand. The good vibes are omnipresent in laying the bed tracks and we’ve been just giddy with excitement playing wicked deadly beats with Maestro Heavy Kevvy at the drum helm. What more can be said? Kevin is a place on earth and heaven is a rhythm section in harmony ????
We’d also like to remind you of some shows coming up really soon (Eastern U.S. seaboard peeps please take note!). Here they are as follows:
Jan 22nd in Allston, MA at Great Scott.
Jan 23rd in Providence, RI at the Columbus Theatre.
Jan 24th in Brooklyn, NY at Rough Trade.
Jan 25th in Philadelphia, PA at Black Box.
Jan 26th in Camden City, CT at Cafe Nine.
Jan 27th in Winooski, VT at the Monkey House.
So all that being said, yr Bezzie Mates would like to wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!
Love and hugs,
After 7 years our beloved guitar player Richard White has decided not to tour anymore. You can still expect to hear his virtuosic playing on our albums but sadly, you will not see him on stage with us much anymore. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Richard from the bottom of our hearts for all the dedicated years of performing with us. Also, Richard will be taking on a role as a mastering engineer at Breakglass so if anyone out there ever needs an album mastered, email Breakglass and we can hook you up with him.
Thanks Rich! We will miss you and your speed-wash. Xo from Oggy, Jack and Kevvy.
