A walk in the Park, Volume 255

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today's song is from a band who's been a mainstay on Canadian rock radio for the last decade or so, and are about to release their fourth full-length album, "Ghosts," very soon.  Fronted by singer / guitarist / songwriter, Ian Thornley, the group is BIG WRECK.  The tune today comes from their last album, "Albatross" (2012), and I don't know why, but I love it.  I seem to always like Big Wreck's album cuts as opposed to their official singles.  Definitely looking forward to the new record & tour, and if you click the pseudo "play" button to the right, you can check out one of my favourites from this band, it's called "HEAD TOGETHER."
