Sloan Announce U.S. Tour Dates!!!

Just when we thought we’d have to go the year without Sloan passing through town, we all got a nice little surprise this afternoon that the band is embarking on a late fall tour of the U.S.! The shows are not promoting any new full length record of course, but it will be showcasing their new EP, Take it Upon Yourself , in which you can currently download the single of the same name on Sloan’s site for FREE. We’re glad to see that Chris Murphy is feeling better from his hit and run accident! The tour also makes a stop at Brooklyn’s Bell House on December 4th (What no Bowery?). Tickets went on sale at Ticketweb today at noon so be sure to grab yourself a pair! Below are the most current Sloan tour dates with more to follow. It’s always good to see some Slllllllllllllllloaaaaannnnnnn!

ps. It’s also Jay Ferguson’s Birthday today!!

Secondhand Sunday: Sloan ‘Money City Maniacs’

Lately I’ve had Sloan on my mind, mainly because New York is usually graced by their prescene this time of year. The word is the guys are working on their next album, the followup to last year’s ‘Parallel Play’ hence why there is a lack of summer touring.

On a more serious note, Sloan bassist/singer/sometimes drummer Chris Murphy was hit by a drunk driver on Friday in Toronto. It was a hit and run. Murphy has a broken collarbone which he will need to have surgery on. Though this doesn’t slow him down one bit as the band is playing a show in their homeland of Canada today in which it was stated that he was just going to sing and not play the bass. Though the band stated that the other few tour dates may be affected since he needs surgery now.

We send all of the well wishes in the world to Chris and a very speedy recovery! He’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.
