Joel Plaskett Announces 2020 Spring Tour New Music On The Way

Joel Plaskett will hit the road in 2020, throughout April and May, in support of some brand new music. Joel is in the home stretch of finishing a completely audacious new album project set for release in April 2020. The project will feature tracks recorded on his own, with The Emergency (Dave Marsh and Chris Pennell) and with other musical friends from Halifax, Memphis, Nashville and Toronto. Stay tuned for more new music.

The tour will have Joel travelling to Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and many more cities and towns across Canada. Tickets will be on sale to the general public on Friday, November 15, with the pre-sales beginning tomorrow, November 13th! Tickets can be found here.

You can’t make a reputation for yourself as a world-class entertainer without hitting the road, and there are few musicians who have tramped the globe like Plaskett has. That journey started in the early ’90s with the playful and explosive Thrush Hermit, which actually just wrapped up an incredible national reunion tour.
For over a quarter-century, Plaskett has delivered the masses intimate, scrappy singer-songwriter fare (In Need of Medical Attention, La De Da); incendiary riff-rock (Down at the Khyber, Truthfully, Truthfully); conceptual, operatic epics and off-kilter feats of musical stamina (Ashtray Rock, Three, Scrappy Happiness); and a collection of left-leaning folk that is partly inspired by the genre’s British masters with his father (Solidarity).

The last album he released under his own name, 2015’s The Park Avenue Sobriety Test, showed him at the top of his game, using all the sounds in a wildly diverse musical toolbox. Rest assured that what’s coming next will be unexpected, a new evolution for an artist who’s never stopped shifting and exploring his medium.
