Cut From Steele : NQ Arbuckle

Album Review: NQ Arbuckle – The Future Happens Anyway

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. WATCH THIS NOW – Fan video “NQ Rothbuckle”

There are two new songs, “Red Wine” and “Back To Earth” streaming here –


We are currently putting the finishing touches on the artwork of NQ Arbuckle‘s new album, “The Future Happens Anyway,” a work that was four years in the making! I’m guessing that the album title might have something to do with how long this album has taken to come to fruition. I promise you, my friends, it will be well worth the wait! NQ is undoubtedly still THE dude. Here’s a sneak peek:

For those of you who NEED your NQ fix NOW, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of shows coming up, including the most awesome Blacksheep Inn (Wakefield), the much-loved Jane Bond (Waterloo), the legendary Horseshoe Tavern (Toronto) and the mysterious “more”. Please note that, being in my privileged position of having seen the above linked video before most of you, I have already learned every single dance move featured therein, so you better do the same before these shows, or get outta my way on the dance floor. See tour dates for deets.
