THE SECRET HANDSHAKE Announces Fall Headlining Tour
New Album NIGHT & DAY Available Now
For more information, please check out www.TheSecretHandshake.net or www.myspace.com/TheSecretHandshake The Secret Handshake is Luis Dubuc.
The Secret Handshake (Luis Dubuc) will be traveling across America this Fall on his headlining tour in support of his recent release, Night & Day. Joining him will be A Cursive Memory, The Narrative and Speak.
It is an album title that truly signposts a major sea change. Night & Day holds fast to its title's pronouncement of seemingly polar opposites. The gripping melodies are still firmly in place, but that's where the similarities between Dubuc's back catalog and his latest creation end.
For the past several years, Dubuc and his fusion of sugary pop hooks, laid atop a host of samples and caked with computer-enhanced effects, created the signature electronic-pop sound that landed him the sort of success that many artists in indie circuits could only wish for.
For his latest full-length, Night & Day, Dubuc wasn't going to resign himself to recording a similar batch of tracks once more. His influences are wide ranging, including The Temptations, Jackson 5, plus Motown-inspired hitmakers like Blood, Sweat and Tears and Tower of Power.
The album's first single is "Domino," a track about Dubuc's friends who gave up on everything in music and stopped trying to progress. "Used to be Sweet" was performed with Canadian artist Lights, whom he had met at the South By Southwest music festival. "It's sort of like Michael Jackson's 'The Girl Is Mine,' we're arguing back and forth." And "Fresh Start" is about, as its title implies, making a change. "For me, in that song, it's about writing a song," says Dubuc. "It's a song about writing a song and starting over with this new sound."
