Stars has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket goes towards providing indigenous women and their children a safe and supportive environment through the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal.

STARS have made their career telling the tales we keep in the darkest, and most hopeful parts of our souls. Delivering the hard and soft edges of life and love as only this band can, they returned with two new tracks Privilege and We Called It Love.

From the reflective beauty of Amy Millan’s vocal in Privilege “never got what you want, never got it” to Torquil Campbell’s contemplative and contrary, “I don’t believe that people change…but I’ve changed” on We Called It Love, Stars return time and again to comfort and reassure us that within the experience of failure and fucking up is the path to a life well lived.

A collective band statement notes, “We’re back! We have a new album. It was recorded in Montreal and Connecticut with the great producer, Peter Katis. We love him and thank him for being there for us. It’s our first with our friends at Last Gang. We made this record for ourselves, for our kids, and for you. And we are so happy and grateful that you’re still listening to our music.”

With approaching 20 years as a band and a storied album catalogue spanning 2001’s Nightsongs, the romantic upheaval of 2003’s Heart and 2004’s Set Yourself On Fire, 2007’s In Our Bedroom After the War, the downcast elegies of 2010’s The Five Ghosts, the rejuvenation of 2012’s The North and sub-base, dance club infused No One Is Lost in 2014, Stars continue to prove themselves some of the finest musical storytellers in the country, moving through life with their fans.

Stars now returns with their 8th full-length release “There Is No Love In Fluorescent Light”, out now via Last Gang Records worldwide.

    I would love to see Stars. Their intricate and robust sounds have thrilled my ears for years. From a Smiths cover to the challenging recent material, they are a band for the ages.

    Stars! One of my absolute favorites!!! The song dead hearts was on replay when I lost my dad 6 years ago! It really helped me through! To see them live would be amazing! I love ALL their song but that song was and is so meaningful to me!

    I’ve been listening to stars since….high school maybe? There are so few bands I come back to routinely like I do Starts. Fuck, they are so good! There are too many amazing songs to name….and this would give me an opportunity to buy more of their albums on vinyl. Ahhhh it would be so awesome to go!!!!!
