Published May 25, 2011Earlier this year, Toronto, ON outfit New Country Rehab earned our Mark of Excellence with their self-titled debut. Now, they're getting set to take their traditional-sounding tunes on a cross-Canada tour.
The band have a jam-packed schedule ahead of them, and they will be playing as many as three shows in the same day (June 25 in Toronto). All told, the outing lasts two months and includes 21 gigs. The vast majority of these are in Canada, as they will be heading all the way to the West Coast and back. There are also a pair of U.S. dates.
