Fresh off the heels from the release of their new album Ghosts (released June 10th), Big Wreck is excited to announce a 2014 Canadian fall tour. The dates will kick off in Edmonton on September 19th at Encore and wrap up in Toronto for two nights at The Danforth Music Hall on October 16th and 17th. Full tour details can be found below and tickets will be available at: www.bigwreckmusic.com. VIP packages will go on sale June 18th at 11am ET and general onsale will be this Friday, June 20th at 11am ET. Ghosts, the band’s fourth studio album hit #1 on the iTunes Rock Charts the day of release and the first single/title track is currently Top 10 at Active Rock and Mainstream Rock in Canada. Check out the killer video for “Ghosts!” The album is available now in Canada and fans have a chance to order from an exclusive list of items through their PledgeMusic campaign here: (http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/bigwreck#exclusives).
Frontman and guitarist Ian Thornley had this to say about the fall tour, “We are very excited to hit the road and hear these songs grow with the fans. This is still only our 4th studio album, there is still a lot that we want to accomplish, and much of that growth must come from live performance.”
Big Wreck headed into Revolution Studios and Vespa Studios in Torontoto record the 13 new songs that make up Ghosts. The band approached the making of this album with a renewed sense of wonder toward the very things that turned them on to rock and roll in the first place. While the album stays true to the driving intensity, booming drum sound and unbridled guitar virtuosity that has always made Big Wreck so appealing, it also explores bold new aural territory which sees the band letting their guard down for the first time to return to the seeds of long forgotten ideas.
Get ready to turn up the amps as Big Wreck take their electrifying new album on tour this Fall!
