We Need Secrets are here to make your day! It’s the pet project of Nova Scotia’s Chad Peck (of Kestrels, Noyes Records fame) and we’re happy to present an exclusive stream of the debut album ‘Melancholy And The Archive’ – out this week. It features guest appearances by ANGO, Elliott Frazier (Ringo Deathstarr), Paul Brown (Kestrels), and Aim Low‘s Omar Husain. Shellac’s Bob Weston handled mastering duties and Elliott mixed the record.

As you’ll hear below, Chad has really worked his ass off to make this a great album. It’s a colourful collection of well conceived shoegaze with all the fuzz, reverb and noise you could hope for! Order your copy of ‘Melancholy And The Archive’ via Saint Marie Records on limited clear glitter vinyl, standard black and CD here or digital. Recommended listening!
