Poliça‘s latest album wasn’t written entirely in response to a terrible accident suffered by vocalist Channy Leaneagh, but at least half the album is reacting to a debilitating fall.

Leaneagh has recovered well enough to release an album and tour in 2020, sharing dates behind her group’s new release When We Stay Alive.

“When Poliça’s singer Channy Leaneagh fell off her roof while clearing ice in early 2018, she smashed her L1 vertebrae and battered her spine, leaving her in a brace with limited mobility for months. Yet ‘When We Stay Alive’ is not about one debilitating accident,” explains a press release. “It’s about the redemptive power of rewriting your story in order to heal, and reclaiming your identity as a result.”

Poliça will start their North American tour behind the album next March at Madison’s High Noon Saloon. A Midwestern and Canadian run takes them to Montreal’s excellent Bar Le Ritz before they start to work their way down the East Coast with stops at Webster Hall and the 9:30 Club. The band heads west, playing a series of shows on their way to a gig at Vancouver’s Venue. The tour heads down the coast and back east, eventually ending at Des Moines’ Vaudeville Mews on May 2.
