JUNO-award winning, Prince Edward Island based The East Pointers release the video for their latest single, “Two Weeks”. The single appears on their sophomore LP What We Leave Behind, out now.

The band had this to say about the making of the “Two Weeks” video:

"Right before we recorded our album, we sat down with our good buddy (and producer) Gordie Sampson and had a good chat about some of the challenges so many people experience working away from home. It certainly can be tough - maintaining a relationship, raising a family or keeping your general well being strong while you’re away from your loved ones."

The new album was produced by superstar East Coast-bred songwriter/producer Gordie Sampson and features a diverse selection of songs ranging from somber and hauntingly beautiful to joyous and celebratory. What We Leave Behind carves a new path for The East Pointers, as they continue to blur the lines between traditional and popular music and develop a devoted fan-base around the globe.
