“mind-bending and original music with deep roots in the tradition of dark North American folk”  - Tom Wilson (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings & Lee Harvey Osmond)

"Peterborough folk duo the Mayhemingways makes a mighty amount of noise for only numbering two in the group." - The MusicNerd Chronicles

TORONTO, ON - January 22, 2018 - Mayhemingways are Benj Rowland and Josh Fewings from Peterborough, Ontario. The duo has announced that their new album, Skip Land, will be coming out February 23, 2018 (Independent). The first single, Frances The Truck Driver, is out NOW. Have a listen and watch the video here. The band is currently on tour, with dates across the country, from now until the end of April. “There is a little piece of all the places we’ve been to and every person we’ve met while touring Canada, on this record," shares Fewings. All details can be found below and at www.mayhemingways.com

In 2017, following their tour with Joel and Bill Plaskett, Rowland and Fewings returned to Steve Loree’s (Ian Tyson, Corb Lund, Petunia) Nanton, AB, studio to have him produce a new collection of their brand of folk songs. The result is 10 songs that see Rowland executing lead vocals and employing a mixed bag of folk instruments like banjo, mandolin, accordion, and acoustic guitar, while Fewings anchors the tunes on the drums and elevates the melody with harmony vocals. East coast folk reels imagining Canadian highways, the morning after kitchen parties, dark floating folk, everyday scenes from the life of a newborn, a snare drum instrumental march, and various journeys are a few of the themes touched on with the new album.   

Skip Land places the Mayhemingways firmly in line with the heritage of their hometown; dark folk drenched melodies delivered with an electricity and veneer that shimmers within the space between the duo.
