Drunk dudes from Huntsville or Lethbridge or St. John’s or wherever hang on every word. Everyone sings, mostly louder than the band. The word motherfucker is a compliment. Every show is an uprising, a groundswell.

Don’t let the self-deprecation or inebriation imply that NQ Arbuckle isn’t serious about the music. This band has earned multiple Juno nominations, considerable critical praise (Pitchfork, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star etc.), and a legion of rabid fans.

NQ Arbuckle has consistently created impressive, treasured albums for more than a decade. But NQ Arbuckle has never made a record like this before.
Six Shooter Records is very pleased to finally confirm the release of The Future Happens Anyway, out April 29, 2014.

NQ Abuckle are: Neville Quinlan, Mark Kesper, Peter Kesper, John Dinsmore, Jason Sniderman

· Nominated for the Juno Award “Roots and Traditional Album of the Year” for “XO K” in 2008
· Nominated for the Juno Award “Roots and Traditional Album of the Year” for “Let’s just Stay Here” with Carolyn Mark in 2009.
· Nominated for Canadian Folk Music awards Contemporary Album of the Year for “XO K” in 2008.

“An album that, by year’s end, should be on everyone’s shortlist.” – Exclaim

“Lots to dig into here, musically and lyrically.” – Toronto Star

“I hear a little Springsteen here, but let’s be clear: Quinlan is not so much interested in the wild and the innocent as he is the shuffle.” – Globe and Mail

“On this record, NQ Arbuckle’s brand of alt-country has evolved to encompass prominent piano parts,
poppy alt rock songs and, lyrically, a tempered cynicism and casual, loving gratitude.” – NOW Magazine
