By Alex HudsonBack in September, Billy Talent topped the Canadian albums chart with their latest full-length, Dead Silence. And now, the Toronto arena punks will embark on a Canadian tour next year, hitting up 17 cities across their home and native land. However, they are hardly going this one alone.
For the trip, Billy Talent have recruited some noteworthy Canadian opening acts. Each show will feature pop-punk peers Sum 41, power-poppers Hollerado and noisy rock duo Indian Handcrafts.
The outing kicks off in Vancouver on March 14. From there, the bands will head east to the Prairies and across Ontario and Quebec, where they will wrap up in Montreal on April 13.
Most of the tickets go on sale starting December 7, although tickets for the March 28 gig in Winnipeg go on sale on December 8. See the schedule below.
