Sorry to have been so quiet over the last few months but the band has been hard at work on our tenth studio album, The Double Cross. It will be available on May 10th from Yep Roc Records, and the Outside Music Label in Canada.
The 12 songs making up the album were recorded at the Sloan Space at the end of 2010. Who says the album is dead?
Jay wanted to share this insight on the album with you:
I think every band always says of their latest LP "it's our best yet!" or perhaps "it's our greatest work since Exile On Main St.", and then you hear it and you say to yourself, 'hmm, well, not quite, guys'. Hopefully I'm not joining those ranks, but for this our 10th album, I personally feel it's up there with my favourites of ours such as One Chord To Another and Never Hear The End Of It...short and sweet with unexpected turns down different paths. Not bad for a 10th LP.
When the rest of the pieces are in place, we will fill you in first on our exclusive Pre-order with Limited Edition packages (with one-of-a-kind album artwork) available at the Sloan Store
You can listen to the album opener, "Follow the Leader" below. You can get this track, free, by clicking on the "Get a FREE Song" button here or in our website's sidebar to the right. Just enter your email address and you will be sent a link to download the track.
The rest of this year, we plan on celebrating our 20th Anniversary (as in “XX” ..as in “Double Cross”..) with some very special shows and tours of Canada and the US throughout Spring, Summer and Fall. Of course, we would love to travel back to other countries if we can make it work out as we do not want to forget those outside of North America.
We are excited for you to hear the new album and to celebrate our 20th year with you all!
Talk with you all very soon,
