(Halifax, NS) The Stogies have announced the release of their sophomore album “HOOT” available in Canada October 7, 2014. This is the second release from the band following their 2011 EP “No Couth, No Class, No Nothin’ “.In March 2014, The Stogies arranged and recorded 11 new tracks with producer, Jon Landry of Canadian rock group The Stanfields and 2014 ECMA and Music Nova Scotia Award nominated recording engineer, Erien Eady Ward at CodaPop Studios in Halifax. The album was mixed at the Sonic Temple by Darren Van Niekerk (Matt Mays, Matt Andersen, Hey Rosetta!) and sent off to John Baldwin (Deer Tick, Rolling Stones, White Stripes) to be mastered in Nashville TN. “Working with Mr. Landry was a game changer.
