They are in the middle of writing a full length follow up to their 2013  EP “Floods and Fires” as well as a new seven inch record.

“ We’ve just been taking the summer to write new songs,” said guitarist/ vocalist Adam Fuhr.
“ The new songs are going in a little bit of a different direction. We’re experimenting sonically. We’re experimenting with a lot of different sounds. We’ve added keyboards and synths and we’ve never had a drummer before and he is making things different,” said Fuhr is joined on stage by  bassist/ mandolinist/ keyboardist  Keegan Steele, violinist/ vocalist Solana Johannson, keyboardist/ cellist  Jodi Plenert and new drummer Jordon Ottenson.

“ We didn’t have a drummer last time we were there, our mandolinist had a tambourine on a kick pedal,” he said.
He noted their new drummer basically invited himself into Yes We Mystic.

“He’s really added a lot to the sound. I play with him in another band called Les Jupes and he said ‘ I’m going to be in your other band,’ and I said ‘you are?’ And it’s gone better than we could have expected,” he said.

“ We’re experimenting and it feels really natural,” he said.
 They are excited to return to Lethbridge.

“ We were there last June and it was one of our favourite stops on the tour. We had a great connection with people so we are very much looking forward to coming back,” he continued.

They have been doing sporadic tours throughout the summer.

“We did a smaller tour in June and we played North By Northeast and we toured out to Vancouver, but we  couldn’t make a stop in Lethbridge,” he said.

“ We’re excited to come back. We’re hoping this show can top the last one,” he continued.
 He noted the Winnipeg music scene is thriving.

“  It is really good. There are lots of bands  who are making a lot of different music. So we’re really excited about it. We do try to spread out our local shows so they will be  bigger events like an EP release,” he continued.
