The New Pornographers Biography
The New Pornographers is a Canadian indie rock band formed in 1997 in Vancouver. The group released their seventh album, Whiteout Conditions, in April 2017. After a long collaboration with Matador Records, the band founded its own label, Collected Works Records. The album depicts various types of issues, from politics to depression.
Before their commercial breakthrough, The New Pornographers suffered continuous line-up changes. In 2000, the band released their debut album, Mass Romantic, to international acclaim. Furthermore, it won a Juno award and set a trend for the following years. Consequently, in 2003, Rolling Stone included The New Pornographers’s second album, Electric Version, on their 100 Best Albums of the Decade.
Their following albums, Twin Cinema (2005), Challengers (2007), Together (2010) and Brill Bruisers (2014), all received positive reviews and recognition. Additionally, the last two made it to the top 20 in both the US and Canada. The Rolling Stone magazine called Brill Bruisers an “exuberant, synthpop-infused set”. Notably, in 2012 the band recorded a cover of Think About Me, for the Fleetwood Mac tribute compilation Just Tell Me That You Want Me. In 2017, The New Pornographers released High Ticket Attractions as the lead single from their following album. The song peaked at number 6 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart.
