Story of The Neighbourhood Rounds:
Cod Gone Wild front man Andrew Mercer grew up on a small neighbourhood street called Newfound Lane, in the town of Bay Robert’s Newfoundland. On this street there lived a tight knit group of neighbours, who regularly got together to celebrate each other’s birthdays and anniversaries. Years ago, a tradition was started at Christmas time to go around the neighbourhood and visit each house, taking the time to have a drink, some food, and to spin a few yarns at each stop along the way.
The tradition of the neighbourhood rounds, continues today and Mercer has written the title track of the album to not only keep the tradition alive and introduce it to Western Canada, but to remind people to come together during the holiday season. “It is my hope that in the spirit of the season, despite this tumultuous world that we live in, that people can come together. Visit your neighbours, check in on a friend that you haven’t spoken to in a while, and most importantly, make time for family,” says Mercer.
The much-anticipated album features a mix of original songs and Christmas songs that Mercer grew up listening to on the east coast. “Growing up in Newfoundland and being exposed to traditional music at a young age, there will always be a strong Newfoundland influence in Cod Gone Wild’s music,” Mercer describes, “having musicians from various musical backgrounds allows us to create something a little more modern and edgy that will have a broader appeal to audiences across the country and around the world.”
