Village Manor encourage everyone to put their Gunsaway in their new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The imploring plea is at the heart of the folk-rockers’ debut release, and was inspired by how “tired everyone is waking up every morning to the news of gun violence on a consistent basis,” co-front John Weinberg says. “It’s every single day!”

In response, the Toronto quintet take aim with their own powerful musical arsenal: An anthem of peace constructed from thundering tom-tom grooves, swirling organ lines, moody guitars — all topped with passionately gritty vocals and a lyrical message of hope and change.

Village Manor sprang up in 2018. A chance encounter between guitarists Weinberg and Sam Kay during an open mic set the band in motion; they soon added singer Mike Levine (Tragically Hits Band), percussionist Corey Weinberg (Numb Tongues), and bassist Mike Grundy (Wychwood Sound).
