Published Jan 21, 2013The last we heard form B.C.-based retro rockers Yukon Blonde, they were tapped to score a commercial for the Canadian Tourism Commission, which served to showcase the country's natural beauty. The band will now get to soak in some of those sights yet again, as they've announced a chunk of Canadian tour dates.
The troupe posted their spring itinerary on Facebook, and revealed they'll kick off the tour with a supporting slot for Stars at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on March 20. From there, they'll hit up a couple more Ontario clubs with Lucy Rose, play a gig with Monster Truck in Ottawa, and make the run from Thunder Bay to Victoria with the mighty Zeus. You can see the details down below.
While Yukon Blonde's last full-length release was 2012's Tiger Talk, the band will have apparently have a tour-only vinyl single for sale at their merch table. The details on the wax platter have yet to arrive.
