By Brock ThiessenEast Van metalheads Bison B.C. have announced they're hitting the road for another round of rock'n'roll mayhem. Starting next week, the band will pack into the van and begin taking their heavy metal roadshow east, hitting up a chunk of Canadian cities like Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Montreal and Toronto, and a few down south as well.
The dates are still in support of Bison B.C.'s 2008 full-length, Quiet Earth, and the rock in general. And while the band don't have much to report in terms of new recordings, Quiet Earth is finally getting some long-overdue gatefold vinyl treatment courtesy of Metal Blade, who are releasing that limited edition version of the album on April 14.
