Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton Coming to Massey Hall This Winter
Massey Hall has announced "Live At Massey Hall: Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton" on Tuesday, December 5 at 8:00 PM. Tickets are on sale today at 1:00 PM.
Haines is set to tour North America this fall as Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton, performing limited engagements in unique, intimate, seated venues handpicked by Haines, herself.
Haines has also partnered with the Plus 1 organization to donate $1 from each ticket sold on the upcoming tour to the She Decides campaign. She Decides was launched to offset the negative consequences to young women around the world resulting from the $600 million in cuts to American foreign aid for family planning and reproductive health programs in developing countries.
Her new album, Choir of the Mind (out Sept 15), is the Metric singer's first release as her Soft Skeleton solo project in a decade. Haines' vocals are the focal point of Choir of the Mind, used to create spellbinding orchestrations for an effect that is subtle and ghostly. Haines is joined by her longtime musical partner/Metric bandmate, James Shaw.
Listen to the single "Fatal Gift" here.
