Album News & Show Dates


Hello Everyone,


We wanted to fill you in on all the latest little bits of news that have been occurring from the Decoys camp.


First of all, the album is in the bag. We finished mixing it about a week ago, now we are just waiting on Guitar Guru Jarrett to finish the artwork. Keep checking over the next little while for info on the first single, tracklisting, artwork, and the release date!


December Shows!

Just wanted to let everyone know about the shows we're playing this December.

As previously reported, we are playing at The Inlet Theatre this Sunday, December 12th, for the ``Very Vancouver Christmas show``. It costs $10 at the door (free if you're under 5 years). Other acts include The Light Machines, Cupla, Danny Echo, and much more.

"What Are The Decoys listening to?....."

The latest instalment of our segment “What Are The Decoys Listening To?.....” is here and this time we are taking a look at what albums drummer Sean Poissant has been listening to!


Sean Poissant: November 22nd, 2010

"A Very Vancouver Christmas 5" compilation is out now!


Hello Everyone,


As we mentioned before, we donated an original Christmas song for the “Very Vancouver Christmas 5” compilation. The song is called “The Greatest Gift” and the only way to hear it is by buying the compilation CD or by buying the song on iTunes. All the money goes to the SPCA, so please check out all the great artists and great original Christmas songs, just in time for the holidays.


K Comp & The Showcase at The Habitat

Our song “Lookin’ All The Time” was selected to be on Kelowna Radio Station K96.3’s first compilation album. There will be a showcase of most of the bands that are going to be on that compilation at The Habitat in Kelowna on Saturday, November 27th. The catch is that the only way to get tickets to see the show is through the radio station or from the bands.
