The Famines Do Extensive Canadian Tour

The Famines Do Extensive Canadian Tour
Rowdy Edmonton rock duo the Famines (aka former Vertical Strut Raymond Biesinger and Wolfnote drummer Garrett Kruger), have announced a large Canadian tour for April and May.

Kicking off on April 4 in Lethbridge, the tour will see the band visit Alberta, BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, playing cities and small towns alike. The tour winds down with a show in Calgary on May 27.

The band are touring in support of their fantastic double seven-inch, a record that Exclaim! writers Josiah Hughes and Sam Sutherland are big fans of. The Famines are currently prepping their second release, an ambitious one that comes as a cassette tape packaged with a 320-page booklet.
