Published Oct 17, 2008Fresh off their performance at the Polaris Music Prize, for which they were nominated, Prince Edward Island's Two Hours Traffic have announced a western to central Canada tour throughout November.
Still riding the momentum of last year's Joel Plaskett-produced sophomore effort, Little Jabs, which earned them numerous nominations, as well as two PEI Music Awards and an East Coast Music Award for Best Pop Album, the PEI band will be joined by the Danks and Hey Rosetta! on select dates that take them out west, starting in Sault Ste. Marie back to Ontario for a final in London on November 29.
When the tour wraps up, the band will take a break before holing themselves up in their space and begin working on a new album in early 2009.
