The Statistics is the project brought to life by brothers Darby and Erin Yule, in an industry town nearly 500 miles from anything resembling outside civilization. Throughout their career, they have mixed punk-rock with their true singer/songwriter personalities and crafted a sound that is truly their own, unique signature sound.
In true DIY fashion, The Statistics dropped their debut EP, Haunts, and performed to a sold-out show in a church basement with a blown PA system. It served as the catalyst to get the band off and running for the Yule brothers, as they took that momentum on the road and began playing all kinds of shows outside of their hometown of Prince George, BC, which including opening for bands like Kingsfoil, Bend Sinister, and more.
When 2016 came, the band continued their dominant and impressive run, even headlining festivals such as UBC Goosehunt Festival (Vancouver), Canadian Music Week (Toronto) and Parks Alive! (Kelowna). The band closed out 2016 with a nomination of “Best out of Province Act” at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, and placing in the semi-finals at Indie Week Toronto’s “Best in Fest” award.
In the Spring of 2017, The Statistics decided it was time to head back into the studio and begin working on their new album. This time, they pulled in an incredible team to work with them. The new album, Robson Street Hymns, was produced by Elisa Pangsaeng and The Statistics themselves, and features a dream-team line up of members from Said the Whale, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Colin James and Wide Mouth Mason. Though it has taken over a year to release, it’s already proven well worth the wait. The first single, “true North” racked up over 40,000 streams in its first month and paved the way for their second single, “Sparks in the Night” back in June of 2019, which received national airplay on CBC Radio 2.
Now, ahead of its release this Friday, September 6th, Substream is excited to premiere the new album, Robson Street Hymns, in full.
“I wrote the Robson Street Hymns about a time of great change in my life. I had just moved from a small town to a big city then right back again. I think this is an album for anyone who is a hopeless romantic or dreamer and is still trying to find their place,” The Statistics tells Substream.
