As reported earlier, Chris Murphy was injured in a hit and run incident in late July. He needed shoulder surgery to repair some of the bone damage, and the band were forced to cancel some summer shows. We are happy to report that Chris is recovering well and will be ready to perform as usual on our fall and winter dates.
We would like to thank our friends Kevin Hilliard (Galore, Small Sins, MRCH) and Taylor Knox (Major Grange, Golden Dogs) for rounding out the lineup on the few shows we have been able to play through Chris' recovery. We'd also like to acknowledge the efforts of our own esteemed colleague Gregory Macdonald who redoubled his efforts on these shows taking shifts on piano, bass, drums, vocals and percussion. Finally, Chris would like to thank all of the friends and fans for their kindness and support through this difficult time.
Sloan are looking forward to resuming their touring schedule on the release of their new EP. While there are only a couple of shows listed in the calendar right now, we are on the verge of confirming a bunch of dates which will hopefully bring Sloan to a city near you.
Onwards and upwards. More news soon!
