Calgary noise boys announce a new EP and tour dates

Calgary, AB’s “blasphemous noise quartet” DRI HIEV are releasing their EP ‘CONTRAVIRTUAL’ and touring across Canada starting in September. The EP ‘ContraVirtual’ is slated to be released the same day as their kickoff to their cross Canadian tour in their hometown of Calgary, Wed, Sept. 23 at Bamboo Tiki Room (1201 1 St SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0V3). The band is streaming ‘Good Shirt’ from their EP on their soundcloud at the following link: https://soundcloud.com/drihiev/good-shirt-1

Guitarist and drum machine musician Dan Auger had this to say about the album’s release, “Last year we lost our drummer and released an EP. By the time that EP was released we had become a different band and that music became irrelevant. We spent the next eight months writing and trying to re-evaluate what we wanted to do as a band. ‘CONTRAVIRTUAL’ is the result of those eight months. It represents where we are and where we’re going.”
