Slated for an October 16 release, the album is titled The Ones We Leave Behind. Listen to a new track called “Hell” and preorder the album here.

“It was definitely the record we wanted to make,” drummer Jordan Gauthier says. “If you can spare 30 minutes of your time start it and don’t press stop.”

Daisy has carefully crafted the record after a year and a half of experimenting with their live performance. The problem was converting the physical show into recorded music.

“We wanted to do it completely live off the floor,” guitarist Colin Jacques says. “Our live show and the energy, we wanted it to translate. That’s why we have no stopping, that’s why all the songs run into each other.”

Through all-night recording sessions, musical misfires and miscommunications, the band learned a lot during their first full-length recording experience and The Ones We Leave Behind is the fruit of their toils.

Below you can listen to my interview with Colin Jacques and Jordan Gauthier, guitar and drums of Daisy. I stopped by their new place in the heart of Ottawan Suburbia at two-o’clock in the morning for some beer and good discussion.
