Published Feb 18, 2016Northcote (a.k.a. Matt Goud) is treating listeners to a new two-song release before he kicks off a national tour alongside Frank Turner tonight (February 18), and Exclaim! has the premiere of the Canadian singer-songwriter's Your Rock and Roll 7-inch.
Fans may recognize the short effort's title track from last year's Hope Is Made of Steel, though it has now been rerecorded as a full-band version. Backing it is an acoustic cover of Bruce Springsteen's hard-rocking "Radio Nowhere," noticeably stripped back in comparison to the original while making use of strong vocal harmonies.
Northcote begins his month-long run of tour dates alongside Frank Turner tonight in Halifax, and you can see the full itinerary here. Take a listen to "Your Rock and Roll" and "Radio Nowhere" in the player below. The single will arrive digitally on Friday.
