Welcome to release day for our new album All That Reckoning. It’s been six not-so-long years since the release of our last album of new material and so much has changed in our lives, in your lives and in the world around us. It’s those changes and that turmoil that drives the songs of All That Reckoning. We hope you take the time to sit down and give it a serious listen. We put a lot of thought, time and sweat into creating it and we are very proud of the result. There is lots to gnaw on.
You can find various links to different ways of buying it and streaming it by clicking here. Or better yet, visit your local independent record store and buy a copy from them.
Don’t forget to take a look at brother Peter’s groovy new psychedelic video for Sing Me A Song.
Michael’s quest to make the NHL before he turns 60 took a significant hit this month when he slid in to the boards and broke his wrist. It also put a significant dent in our touring plans for January and February. We’re sorry to let you know that the February Blowin’ and Driftin’ Tour that was to take place across Ontario has been postponed until October. You can find the new dates on the Tour Page. All tickets will be honoured for those shows. If you have specific ticket questions please contact the venue. Sorry about the hassle…
Back in 2003, in the dead of winter, we headed out on a small theater tour of Southern Ontario. The weather was miserable, but the spirit in the venues was magical. As the tour gathered steam, so did the small caravan of cars that decided to follow us from gig to gig. The tour became known as Blowin’ And Driftin’ 2003. It was a memorable run for both the audience and the band.
In February, fifteen years after the first Blowin’ and Driftin’ Tour, we’re heading back out on those same highways and to many of those same venues. Over the course of two weekends (from Feb 1 to 10) we’ll be playing shows in Guelph, Kingston, Ottawa, Markham, Burlington and Milton – Blowin’ and Driftin’ 2018. The band is playing great these days, Margo is singing better than ever, we’re inspired by the material we’ve recorded for our new album coming in 2018 and we’re having more and more fun reaching deep into our catalog and playing those familiar and not so familiar songs….one thing we can guarantee is that the set list will be different each night.
Below is a small taste of what you might hear…..a rollicking version of “Good Friday” recorded at one of our Latent Lounge concerts in Toronto this past March. All concert and ticket info can be found on the Tour Page. We hope to see some of you out there…dress warm!
A very sad day up here in Canada as we process the news of the death of Gord Downie. Gord was the front man and lyricist for The Tragically Hip, one of the best live bands to ever emerge from this country. His lyrics contained a complexity, fragility and beauty that often worked in joyful juxtaposition to his bands hard-rocking exterior. He was a songwriter who set the bar high for many of us; he was a willing collaborator; a grand experimentalist; and a loving dad. He will be missed by many, but especially and fiercely by a precious few.
Here is our version of The Tragically Hip’s, “Little Bones”.
Last week at the Latent Lounge a number of Latent artists covered songs off of The Trinity Session. Pete and Mike sat in on a few of the songs, it was an amazing night. We have been and will continue to be posting songs from all four Latent Lounges so make sure to subscribe to the Latent Recordings YouTube channel.
