We Were Archaeologists
Our story begins: Once upon a time, we were archaeologists, scraping away at the soil in our little staked-off squares - at our little cordoned- off digs - searching for bits of song, or shards of poetry to shine up and present to our peers as 'beautiful' and 'interesting' and 'magical' We are Reily. We have independently released two albums - the first of which is now officially sold out after peaking at #3 in some college radio charts in September, toured across Canada, the northern U.S. and southern Ontario and built up a local, national and international fan base that saw us headline nearly sold-out concerts at the famous Lee's Palace as well as the Horseshoe Tavern (Toronto) on several occasions. We are Reily. We are now writting and recording at our home studio for our next release, which is expected to be released on a Canadian indie label in May of 2007. It will be followed by a North American tour. We merge folk influences with an indie rock edge. We create a sound that is familiar but unconventional, beautiful but unapologetic. We create a sound that Saint Rock and Roll Magazine (Vancouver)calls: "a new kind of sound [which is] really quite delicious."
