SCHED* SXSW 2011 has ended
avatar for Malajube


After winning the Félix award (ADISQ) in the Alternative Album of the Year category in 2009, after two Polaris Music Prize nominations and over 370 shows across Canada, the United States and Europe (plus a few dates in Japan), the "Labyrinthes" adventure has finally come to an end. After the release of "Contrôle", a limited EP release of four songs and "Cubes Rubiques", a memorable show presented at the Théâtre Maisonneuve at Place des arts for the 2010 edition of Les FrancoFolies de Montréal, the band is now composing what will be their fourth album, the aftermath of the epic and critically acclaimed "Labyrinthes", set for release in April of 2011. The pop/rock group litteraly took over the indie rock scene over the years, since the release of their debut record "Le Compte Complet" (2004) and more recently has drawn a wide amount of praise with their second album "Trompe-l’oeil" (2006), a masterpiece that found its way of springing out of the already artistically rich local music scene, with their unique and original sound. "Labyrinthes" (2009) confirmed that the band was one of the most prolific and talented bands from Montreal. In addition of proudly winning five Felix awards over the years in their native province of Québec, Malajube has extensively toured the country and abroad playing festivals and events such as the SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, Osheaga, Les Eurockéennes and Les Francofolies de Montréal, turning on industry-heads and listeners alike. Regardless of the language barrier, "Trompe-l’oeil" was released in the U.S. on the Dare to Care label, (October 31st, 2006) in Europe, (on the German label City Slang in Spring 2007) and in Japan. The band pleased critics from all around; The New York Times, NME, Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Wired, Fader, Filter, Spin, Penthouse, Men’s Health Journal, Vanity Fair and more, all praising Malajube’s music in unison.
