Sloan Expand 'Twice Removed' Tour with More Canadian Dates

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Jun 26, 2012

As was hinted at yesterday (June 25), Sloan will be spending much of their fall promoting an upcoming triple-LP reissue of their beloved sophomore album, Twice Removed. We already knew that the act would be performing the album in its entirety when they hit Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on September 14, but the group have now unveiled a new leg of dates that will have them cranking out the collection from the West Coast out towards the Prairies.

Sloan just posted the chunk of tour dates in a blog post, with several stops scheduled between B.C. and Manitoba taking place throughout September. There are a few of U.S. dates, too, and you can see the full itinerary down below. Additionally, East Coast dates are expected to take place sometime in October and November

As previously reported, the group will play the 12 tracks from their 1994 masterpiece, followed by a set of hits culled from throughout their career. We're hoping we'll truly get the full-album experience and Sloan brings former Jale singer Jennifer Pierce along on the trip to duet with guitarist Patrick Pentland on Twice Removed's soft-rockin' closer "I Can Feel It," but only time will tell if that wish comes true.

The quartet added that the details of the Twice Removed reissue, which apparently collects two bonus discs of demos and previously unreleased material, will be on their way shortly.
