February 19th, 2013 (Montreal, QC) – The New Cities are back and this time they go way
back! Their hot new single “The New Rule” dropped on February 19th with a fiery rage! The
astonishing video for this 4th single off of their sophomore album “Kill The Lights” takes us back
to the 80’s, with a homage to the B Horror genre with a twist of vintage Sci-fi. The video,
directed by 2012 ADISQ Video of the Year award winner Mathieu Cyr, follows a gang of
vigilante warriors through their hunt for evil robot aliens hiding in human bodies and planning on
destroying humanity! The electro-rock track was written by the band together with the hit
making team The Matrix (Britney Spears, Korn, Avril Lavigne) and displays the outrageously
energetic and angry edge of the band, which helped build their reputation as live beasts.
For those just discovering The New Cities, the band has spent the last 7 years touring, bringing
their crazy live act all over Canada, the US, the UK and France. Their debut single “Dead End,
Countdown,” reached Gold status and had them touring with the likes of Simple Plan, Katy
Perry, Avril Lavigne, Marianas Trench and more. From there, awards and accolades came
pouring in; including a JUNO Award nomination for New Group of the Year, an ADISQ award
nomination for Anglophone Album of the Year and a SOCAN songwriting award, only to name a
Melding elements of classic synth-pop to the power of dance and punk, their music has an
intensely infectious sound, and has been featured on hit TV shows including Gossip Girl,
Degrassi: The Next Generation, and So You Think You Can Dance: Canada.
