Originally formed as a one-time-only opening act for Tokyo Police Club at a show in Toronto, Will Currie & The Country French ended up releasing three critically-acclaimed albums before going on an extended hiatus. But when the creative team of hit viral cartoon Cyanide & Happiness commissioned Will to write what they called the saddest song in the world, there was an overwhelming response from C&H fans looking for more! The result is They Killed Us, a blurred combination of pop and symphonic music, and an unabashedly autobiographical account of the band s quiet years after 2011 s Awake, You Sleepers!

Rejoice! This is the pop record for those who thought pop was a dead art … brings to mind some brilliant alliance between Ben Folds and They Might Be Giants. –Pop Matters

An undeniably addictive listen. –Now

For fans of Elton John, Wilco, and Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem. –Magnet
