The instrumental release follows the band’s 2013 JUNO nominated studio album Warring, their 2012 reworking of Steely Dan’s AJA and their 2011 self-titled A&C debut.

Originally inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s Cities Of The Plain, the piece was produced by The Darcys, mixed by Warring producer Tom McFall (Bloc Party, Stars) and described by the band as “an experiment in creating sound that reflects emotion.” Hymn For A Missing Girl was recorded inside a barn at Knowles Farm, Grey Highlands, Ontario, summer 2013.

Available as part of Record Store Day in Canada and in the US on April 29th – the vinyl pressing is limited to 500 copies in North America. Hymn For A Missing Girl will be available on iTunes worldwide June 3.

This project was originally inspired by pages 263-128 of Cormac McCarthy’s Cities of The Plain
