Published Mar 21, 2012Last month, Toronto roots rock outfit Skydiggers announced their eighth album Northern Shore, and shortly after the collection's April 17 street date, the Canadian combo will take their new tunes on a cross-country trek.
The group kick off the trip with a couple of Ontario dates, starting with a performance in Burnstown on April 26, but the Skydiggers quickly head out all the way out to the West Coast for a two-night stand at Vancouver's Railway Club on May 2 and 3. From there, they'll travel from the Prairies out to the Maritimes before wrapping things up at Wakefield, QC's Black Sheep Inn on June 30. You can see the detailed schedule down below.
Skydiggers have also just dropped the first teaser track for Northern Shore, the low-key sea shanty "Waves." You can stream the number, which features guest musician Jaro Czerwinec on accordion, down below. A press release points to other songs fans can look forward to, including the "propulsive mechanized beat" and xylophone samples of "The Herd" and a honky-tonk cover of Mickey Newbury's "Why You Been Gone So Long."
As previously reported, Northern Shore arrives through Latent Recordings.
