HOLD EP, FIRST NEW MUSIC FROM RICH AUCOIN IN THREE YEARS, DUE OUT MARCH 16
CANADIAN TOUR DATES BEGIN FEBRUARY 20
Today, Rich Aucoin has released his new single “The Middle”. A four-minute sonic journey highlighted by ethereal synths and an insistent bassline, Aucoin’s vocals cut through as the track builds to an emotive peak. Pulled from his Hold EP set for release on March 16. The official video, directed by Meags Fitzgerald, premiered today with Noisey, who called it “an extremely earnest, charming-as-hell reflection on the self at the midpoint of life and death.”
The Hold EP is a dreamy four-track collection and a stark contrast to the short high-tempo songs from his previous release, hinting toward a rebirth for Aucoin. Tracks like “Release”, which earned acclaim from the likes of Exclaim! and Impose Magazine, showcase his undeniable ability to transform and manipulate sound. Just as his last album led him on a bike tour across Canada while donating every cent to cancer research, fans should expect nothing less this time around.
Rich will support the new release with a string of tour dates throughout Canada beginning on February 20. Full tour dates below.

Feb 21 - Ottawa, ON - House Of Targ
Feb 22 - Guelph, ON - The eBar
