The Olympic Symphonium have spent the past 6 months touring their second album in Atlantic Canada, showcasing in the United Kingdom (twice), performing in Memphis at a folk conference and recently playing shows in Western Canada. More In Sorrow Than In Anger is now available on vinyl with a music video for the song â€œSide by Sideâ€ included in the digital download card that comes with the album. The video, directed by Andrew J.P. Sisk, was all shot on vintage Super8 film using stop motion sequences.
The Olympic Symphonium reach out to anyone who want to hear quiet, rejoiceful, and melancholic songs that seem to draw from the soul of Bonnie Prince Billy and sung by Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Since the release of their new album, More in Sorrow than in Anger, they have been charting across Canadian radio, BBC and campus stations and performing with the likes of Hayden, Catherine MacLellan, and Snailhouse.
