Having the opportunity to catch Danish indie rock outfit Alcoholic Faith Mission for the first (and only time) at last year’s Canadian Music Week was an incredible experience I won’t soon forget. The band have a stage presence that is second to none and their songs command your full attention…a rarity in today’s live music scene as far as I’m concerned.

That said, the sextet recently dropped a new video for their song Ask Me This and you really ought to check it out in the embed below. The track will be included on their upcoming album (cover art above) of the same name and will be released in North America on May 1st via Old Flame Records, also home to iM favourites MillionYoung and Letting Up Despite Great Faults.

In other news, the Danes play The Drake Hotel on May 2nd – be sure to get your tickets now because this one is definitely going to sell-out. For more info and additional tour dates, visit their website or hit them up on Facebook.
