Following the release of their critically-acclaimed album Hello Hum in 2012 and a heavy touring cycle, Wintersleep took a well-deserved break that didn’t last too long. After writing a wealth of material in their Montreal studio, the band carefully curated the 11 songs comprising The Great Detachment and returned to Halifax’s Sonic Temple – the birthplace of their widely acclaimed Welcome To The Night Sky with producer Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai). The Great Detachment is a rock album overwhelmed with a musical warmth which harkens back to the era of Wintersleep's much-loved break-out song “Weighty Ghost.”
