Northcote – AKA Canadian songwriter Matt Goud – has announced extensive European touring plans with Chuck Ragan.
Following the huge run of gigs Matt did with Dave Hause across the UK and Europe late last year - Matt joins the shrapnel-throated Hot Water Music vocalist Chuck Ragan for his 'Overseas Till Midnight' tour – taking in a string of German and UK dates in May/June, with Italian and Austrian stops along the way. Northcote will dip into last year's Xtra Mile Recordings self-titled album for eloquent blasts of refined yet raw Americana. All dates are below.
To whet the appetite, Northcote has also unveiled the first instalment of 'The Lowville Sessions' live set with this performance of 'Drive Me Home'. Further episodes of this beautifully filmed session will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Born and raised in small-town Saskatchewan, Northcote’s early exposure to music was a mix of traditional country on AM radio and the hymns he learned at his childhood church. However, it wasn't until he discovered punk and hardcore music that he realized music’s healing and therapeutic power. Over the past 8 years, few young musicians in Canada have put on as many miles as Goud who toured for years as a member of a post-hardcore band and has more recently transitioned into life on the road as a singer/songwriter with accompaniment by an ever-rotating slew of guests and friend musicians.
