Sloan will be visiting MuchMusic Oct 30 at 8pm ET to discuss the new album. The interview will re-air Nov 4 at 3pm ET.
The two bonus tracks that will appear on the Japanese import are titled "Had Enough" and "Helen". The (alleged) North American streetdate is Nov 6, while the album is due out in Japan Oct 24.
There is apparently another band making the rounds in the States calling themselves Sloan. We kid you not. Some of you may have been confused by the conflicting tour dates recently posted on Pollstar. Three dates - Chapel Hill, Decatur, Lake Harmony - are not a part of OUR tour schedule (sorry to disappoint the folkies in Pennsylvania). Stay tuned to this page for any new info (and to avoid further confusion).
Have Not Been The Same: The CanRock Renaissance by Michael Barclay, Ian A.D. Jack and Jason Schneider will be out the week of September 25th through ECW Press. This near 800 page creation (with well over 100 photos) weaves the stories of various scenemakers and highly influential bands of the '80s and '90s from across the country including The Tragically Hip, Change of Heart, Mary Margaret O'Hara, The Rheostatics, Neil Young, Blue Rodeo and Sloan. An entire chapter is devoted to the history of our beloved Sloan and a separate chapter documents the development of the East Coast underground weaving the stories of Jale, Eric's Trip, The Super Friendz, Thrush Hermit, Rebecca West, Hardship Post, Black Pool, Jellyfishbabies and Sarah McLachlan's early beginnings. The book will retail at $29.95.

"...As for the record, here is a brief overview. It should be noted that there was much more collaboration on this record than on the last few, so there was a lot of cross pollination." —Patrick
