Getting to the bottom of juicy gossip is more or less what I'm paid to do. After hearing a rumour that Wintersleep were all headed to Montreal for good, I tried to convince myself it wasn't consequential, but failed to do so. In a very big-city move, I spoke with a publicist instead of the actual band. This is what she says: "While several of the band members are spending some time in Montreal, they are not relocating. Only one member is a permanent resident and Wintersleep is still based home in Halifax."
Safe for one more year in The Coast's Best of Music Reader's Poll. If you don't stick around, you don't qualify. Stick around and win!
