Canadian rockers, Sam Roberts Band announce their new album, `Terraform’ set for release October 28 via Universal Music Canada. The album was produced by Graham Walsh of Holy Fuck and Sam Roberts at the Bathouse Recording Studios, the Tragically Hip’s studio near Kingston, On.
After locking themselves in studio for the month of March, the group’s time and spirit lead to the collection of songs that make up `Terraform’ `Terraforming is the concept of going to another planet and making it or viable and livable for humans,” Roberts explained. “But in a sense for this record, it can be seen as planting the seeds for that sort of renewal in your life – that regardless of how much you have broken the parts of your life along the way, there is always a chance to start over.”
`Terraform’ is Roberts’ follow up to his 2015 `Counting The Days’ EP and he believes the key to the band’s longevityis their steadfast enthusiasm to stick to their artistic guns and consistently work towards making a better album each time. “I think the challenge for our band is to still deliver the music with a sense of spontaneity, a sense of urgancy and I think when we go into a new record, we sort of loosen the grips of other people’s expectations and our own expectations,” Roberts noted.
The lead single “If You Want It” is already a chart-climbing success, currently in the top five at Alternative Radio. The tune captures what Sam Roberts Band does best, creative instrumental melodies and memorable lyrics that allow their listeners to interpret their own meanings for the songs. And in Sam’s own words, “It’s about a trip to Hell…and hopefully back”.
The acclaimed Montreal-based five-piece band includes Sam Roberts (lead vocals, guitar), Dave Nugent (guitar), Eric Fares (keyboard, guitar), Josh Trager (drums) and James Hall (bass). The band will embark on a North American tour commencing in Sherbrooke Quebec November 2.
