Just weeks away from a headlining show at Fairmount Theatre (their first Montreal play in over two years), Corridor has returned with Et Hop, a new single out today via Bonsound and Sub Pop. This is the band's first new release since their highly acclaimed third album, Junior, came out in 2019.
Et Hop is available now on all music services.
Written during the sessions for Corridor’s second LP, Supermercado, Et Hop was a gem gathering dust in the band’s musical vault. But when CISM, the student-run radio station at the University of Montreal, asked the band if they wanted to release a song to mark the radio station’s 30th-anniversary, they knew exactly what to offer.
Corridor is taking this opportunity to announce a new series of shows in Canada and the United States, including dates in Montreal, Toronto, Brooklyn and Chicago. See the list below for all the details.
Formed in Montreal, Corridor is a band that brilliantly masters stealthy guitar dodges, spiraling vocal harmonies, clever jangle-pop hooks and exciting riffs that oscillate between psych and post-punk. Devotees to the DIY approach, the band members are used to designing their own merchandise, as well as making animated videos for their songs and creating the covers of their albums or singles (as was the case for Et Hop).
The impact of Junior, the band’s most recent and third full-length album, was immediate and enduring. It earned Corridor rave reviews from BrooklynVegan, Clash, Paste, Stereogum, Exclaim!, and more. Their live performance also impressed, as evidenced by the band’s KEXP session and their dynamic shows. The band toured Europe and North America, a string of shows that established Corridor as one of the brightest and best of the genre. The shows went so well, in fact, that the band - formed by Jonathan Robert (guitar and vocals), Dominic Berthiaume (bass), Julian Perreault (guitar) and Julien Bakvis (drums) - decided to make Samuel Gougoux, a live collaborator for the Junior tour, a full-time member.
