Published Feb 20, 2015Vancouver Island psych specialists the Backhomes have been performing material from their forthcoming album Tidalwave since last year, and with the album slated to drop in May, they're preparing for more preview shows next month. This "Spring Break" tour will also feature fellow Victoria outfit Hush Pup.
The outing runs for most of the second half of March. In that time, the bands will start off in Victoria before making their way east across the Prairies. They have nine shows together, and Hush Pup have an extra one of their own in Winnipeg.
