Vevo and The Strumbellas Share Official Live Performance Videos

Vevo announces the release of The Strumbellas' live performances of "I'll Wait" and "The Party" off their new album Rattlesnake. Rattlesnake, released March 29, 2019 via Glassnote, was recorded on the band's home turf in Kingston and Toronto, Ontario, and is a musical step forward from the to-the-rafters scrappy folk aesthetic of their earlier work. For the album, The Strumbellas, made up of Simon Ward (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), David Ritter (keys), Jeremy Drury (drums/percussion), Isabel Ritchie (strings), Jon Hembrey (electric guitar) and Darryl James (bass), teamed up with producer Tim Pagnotta (Walk the Moon, Elle King) and co-producer Brian Phillips, with the goal to capture the electricity of their live show with a decidedly more stylistic upbeat bent.
