Edmonton's indie-rock trio - Scenic Route to Alaska, are embarking on a new journey.

The recent SOCAN song award recipients have their sights set on new accolades with a new album, a single - accompanied by a video, and a long run of shows venturing as far as Europe.

Their new album entitled Tough Luck is gearing for its debut on March 9th with the release of their first single "How it Feels". The track is described as an impulsive indie-rock song about the challenges of finding love - or even a relationship, while being caught up in the hustle and bustle of touring and life on the road.

The single is paired with a wrestling-themed video filmed and directed by Mike Robertson and Cory Johnn.


Already having booked showcases at SXSW and the East Coast Music Awards, the band is scheduled to tour their homeland, the states and across the pond for their Tough Luck Tour.
