JUNO’S Breakthrough Group of the Year Neon Dreams will embark on a 10-date tour of Atlantic Canada following the release of their new album “The Happiness of Tomorrow,” out November 13. Frank Kadillac and Adrian Morris are taking advantage of the COVID-safe Atlantic Bubble that enables them to perform for fans in person at selected venues, making them the only band touring in North America for the remainder of 2020.
Adrian Morris says of the announcement:
“We’re very fortunate to live in a part of the world that has minimal cases of COVID-19 and we are able to tour safely. Connecting with people through live music is an essential part of the human experience. We are grateful to have this opportunity as it’s a huge step towards getting back to normalcy. We’re excited to get on stage and perform to a live audience again.”
Sometimes the most terrible situations can have positive outcomes. For Neon Dreams, COVID-19 shutting down the world was the catalyst for their sophomore album. Though Frank Kadillac and Adrian Morris had dozens of songs written pre-pandemic, the title track was conceived in quarantine and became the spark for the rest of the project. The new album will include their most recent releases “Don’t Go Hating Me Now” and “Sick of Feeling Useless,” one of the few songs in recent history that has crossed multiple formats in Canada. It is currently climbing the U.S. alternative radio chart and went top 10 on U.S. college radio.
