Vancouver, B.C., forest rockers Yukon Blonde have been hard at work over the past year. In 2010 the band released its self-titled album, then toured the United States. In September the band released the EP Fire//Water, and it is slated to release a brand new, as-yet unnamed LP in February 2012.
Yukon Blonde is lauded for its skillful live performances. The band tours heavily and is in the midst of a 60-plus-date U.S. trek. In 2010, popular Canadian music publication Chart named Yukon Blonde Best Band of the 2010 Canadian Music Week Festival, and the Canadian Broadcast Corporation labeled it one of the "10 Canadian bands destined to break in 2010."[ Video is no longer available. ]
