    Welcome everyone! This weekend’s tour date takes us all the way to Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.

    Probably the biggest and best alternative/indie festival in the world, this weekend we’re going to experience the festival in a whole new, exciting way!

     

    And now for our hints…

     

    Hint 1:

     

    And you may ask yourself,

    Are black and white, really all right?
    And you may ask yourself,
    What suits that kind of suit?
    And you may ask yourself,
    Can balls can be that heavy,
    And you may ask yourself,
    if it’s more red than dead,
    Out in Texas, or in an Afro-trade,
    Blood-spilled floors, and suited babes.
    Hint 2:

    Note: this image contains several tracks from one artist, and several singles from various artists. See if you can figure out the artist, which pictures belong to the pack, and what the other singles are!
    Hints may refer to a song title, a prominent line or the artist name.
    Hints 1 and 2 are unrelated, and does not refer to the same songs.

    Good luck!

    I feel this may be a long shot, but i feel like in hint 2, picture 5 is “Amanda Palmer – Guitar Hero”.
    the rest i’m still thinking about.

    Moist “Push” is already in the database. I should know. Good guess though.

    Keeping the content Canadian since 2017!

    A couple of thoughts:

     

    1. The first image might be referring to Styx? If so, what about “The Grand Illusion”?

     

    2. It seems odd that the calendar image is of the day after Halloween, not simply pointing to November 1st. Is that the clue?

    Anyway, November 1st is All Saints’ Day, so I was thinking something by the group All Saints, or a song called “All Saints’ Day”, maybe by Van Morrison?

     

    3. The rug in the third picture made me think of the band Inspiral Carpets. I’ll guess “This Is How It Feels”.

    Correct!

     

    Some good guesses in this thread, but unfortunately this is the only right one so far. Keep trying!

     

    2. It seems odd that the calendar image is of the day after Halloween, not simply pointing to November 1st. Is that the clue?

     

     

    The arrow is definitely a part of the clue, and there’s a reason it’s this way and not simply November. That’s all I’m going to say about that <img loading=” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_smile.gif” />

    November 1st is Dia de Los Muertos aka the Day of the Dead in Mexico (also celebrated by those of Mexican heritage).

     

    Whether the song in question has to do with that holiday or not, no idea, but that’s the significance.

    I’ve been staring at these images all week. The only thing I can come up with is the second pic is definitely a dude pushing a Pinto. So, Pinto by Gob?

    So, some of the songs released yesterday. First poem was referring to Talking Heads album covers and tunes.

    As for pictures, top left is Borracho (“Here comes the devil, buys the round… One whiskey for every ghost” is the chorus), while the middle row is “October All Over” and “Guitar and Video Games”.

     

    The hints still unsolved are the middle one in the top row, and the entire bottom line. See if you can solve it before today!
