by Three Gut

The Constantines are a five-piece now that the Guelph natives have picked up Toronto keyboardist Whil Kidman. After touring with the band last summer Kidman (who also fronts Toronto-based two piece Woolly Leaves) was asked to join full time. The band's sophomore release is due on July 22nd from Three Gut Records in Canada and Sub Pop everywhere else. Drummer Doug MacGregor spoke with Exclaim about the band's plans to tour extensively in support of the release, "That's pretty much the plan…. Get in the van and see how far we can go, and see what crazy adventures we can get into along the way."
