born-gold-cecil-frena-calgary

Born Gold AKA Cecil Frena (formerly known as Gobble Gobble) will be embarking on a gigantic tour including many house shows. Born Gold has always balanced his polished, dancey sound, with a whimsical amount of DIY lunacy that has manifested itself nicely in this new tour. 

From the press release:

I Am An Exit Out October 8

Plans Announced For Massive House Concert Tour

Pop Montreal Confirmed for Sept 26-29

New Single “Abdomen” Here

“Hunger“… Frena wields a festival-sized hook – Pitchfork

“Hunger” is a bright, bustling electro-pop communique from a narrator who is “doing alright / treading water for days.” – Spin

“One super-hooky first cut… “Hunger,” a song that is simultaneously more straightforward and more out-there than his previous releases..” – Stereogum

Listen to “Hunger” & watch the official video

Vancouver, BC – August 20, 2013 – Edmonton’s Cecil Frena aka Born Gold is readying to release his third full length album, I Am An Exit, on October 8th through Art Control/Hovercraft.

Born Gold will be burning a trail of house concerts all over North American this fall. If you are lucky enough, find yourself at one soon. For more show information, go to http://borngold.us/
