cleopatrick asks users to drive the van with new single and game

Posted by Loren on April 24, 2021

Comprised of Luke Gruntz (guitar/vocals) and Ian Fraser (drums), cleopatrick has shared a single for the song "Family Van," the lead single for their upcoming debut album, Bummer.

The two members are life-long friends who grew up in a small Ontario town. The two started making music, and here we are today -- check out "Family Van" after the jump. But, wait, there's more...

The band also has a new 8-bit video game to accompany the single, in which the player needs to get the family van from Coburg, Ontario to a headlining gig in Toronto, with various obstacles along the way. The band also composed the soundtrack.

The record releases on June 4 via the band's Nowhere Special Recordings with distribution through The Orchard / Thirty Tigers.

Tour dates are currently scheduled for the USA and UK beginning in September.
