Big John Bates Takes 'Battered Bones' on Canadian Tour

BY Alex HudsonPublished Sep 28, 2012

Big John Bates released his album Battered Bones earlier this month, and soon the Vancouver punk'n'roll growler will be supporting the new disc with a batch of fall tour dates.

Following a brief run of U.S. gigs that stretches from the end of this month to the beginning of next, Bates will hit the road in Canada starting in mid-October. This Jägermeister-sponsered outing launches on the East Coast. The songwriter will then head west until he hits Revelstoke, BC, on November 4, making for a total of 14 Canadian shows.
