Northern State Celebrates the Release of Their Third LP with a Nonstop Tour!

Northern State celebrates the release of their third LP with record release party mini tour. They will also be touring with Tegan & Sara on all of their Canadian Dates in early Fall, and into the US in the Winter. Their up and coming stunner Can I Keep This Pen? out on Ipecac Recordings on August 28.

Northern State delivers a somber yet angelic version of “No Surprises” adding all the flavor you would come to expect and taking away nothing. The ladies teamed up with producer Chuck Brody of Shitake Monkey (Wu Tang Clan, Yoko Ono etc.) and Adrock from the Beastie Boys and recorded an album for Ipecac Recordings.

They pushed the limits in terms of what Northern State can sound like, with their classic old school hip hop sound weaving its way through a new electro-rock current. The ladies did an unprecedented amount of singing and were fortunate enough to have some talented friends like Mr. Murray Hill, Kaki King, and Katie Cassidy stop by and play on the album. When it was finished, they named it Can I Keep This Pen?
