Rain Over St. Ambrose.

By Tina Comeau



Rain Over St. Ambrose is releasing its debut full-length album – Truth for News – at Haley’s Lounge on Friday, Dec. 14. 

While the local band saw much success from its four-song EP Overton Window, which included four Nova Scotia Music Week nominations, the band is looking forward to sharing its full-length project with its fans.

Band members include Curt Le Blanc, Cory LeBlanc, Marc Durkee, Luke Amirault and Matt Amirault.

The CD release gets underway around 9 p.m. and will also feature performances by The Rockabillys, Quiet Parade and Lead Mule.

Advance tickets for $5 have been sold via Rain Over St. Ambrose’s Facebook page and website (click here), which can then be picked up at City Drug on Main Street. At the door tickets will be $7.

Cory LeBlanc says the band is excited to be launching its first full-length CD. He adds that the response the band got to its four-track EP – which also saw it voted best new band during public voting in a contest sponsored by The Coast – created even more anticipation for this project. And for LeBlanc, also a tiny sense of apprehension. He notes he’s played in other bands that have put out full-length CDs that didn’t get the response that Rain Over St. Ambrose’s four-track EP had.

But revisiting the same studio that they had recorded their EP in brought about a sense of familiarity and comfort, says LeBlanc.

And the accolades the group has gotten for its work thus far also provided a lot of encouragement for the project.

With the other bands that will also be performing, along with Rain Over St. Ambrose’s CD release, LeBlanc says Friday night’s event will be a good time for everyone, both on stage and off.

“It’ll be a fun night,” he says.
