The Sadies have announced a Western Canadian Fall tour in support of Northern Passages, the band’s most recent, widely acclaimed studio album on Dine Alone Records (Canada). The tour begins in Winnipeg on September 13 and takes the band through Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. After a successful run in Spain and on the heels of a U.S. tour with Justin Townes Earle, The Sadies will perform various shows over the summer until they kick off their Fall Canadian run including a play at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on August 19 with Blue Rodeo,Skydiggers and Oh Susanna. See below for a full routing.
Recorded in the basement of Dallas and Travis’ parents’ home north of Toronto over the winter of 2015, the familiar surroundings and lack of distractions resulted in a consistent feel to Northern Passages, despite the eclecticism at the heart of The Sadies’ sound. The essence of The Sadies’ story can be summed up with the powerful image of the aurora borealis adorning the cover. Ever since the quartet, comprised of singer/guitarists Dallas and Travis Good, bassist Sean Dean and drummer Mike Belitsky, first arrived on the North American scene more than 20 years ago, their music has never been less than awe-inspiring, with no embellishment necessary.
