The Fugitives are a Vancouver-based acoustic folk-roots group headed by songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod, and joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters). They released their sixth album, ‘No Help Coming,‘ last year.

The record is about living in the climate emergency.  The normal human and events and feelings are present – fraught friendships (‘Dead Money’), career changes (‘Wing and a Prayer’), coping mecha­nisms (‘Not Burning Out’), romance (‘It Might Just Rain Like This For Days’) – but all under the spectre of environmental disaster.  “There’s still a tendency to create in a vacuum,” says Adrian Glynn. “To write a love song as if our province wasn’t engulfed in smoke. Or, to write just about that smoke, and not about being in love at the same time as you’re breathing it in.”

‘No Help Coming’ has a European release date of 7th June on Fallen Tree Records.  You can listen to the title track below and in the meantime, in tandem with their album release The Fugitives have announced some 2024 UK tour dates as follows:
