Big Wreck have just announced a whopping North American tour, with 34 Canadian dates.
The That Song rockers kick things off on Aug. 3 in Tyne Valley, P.E.I. at the highly anticipated Rock the Boat music festival. The extensive trek concludes on Dec. 20 at Toronto’s legendary Danforth Music Hall.
Paired with the tour announcement came the reveal for Big Wreck’s upcoming sixth studio album, …But For the Sun.
It’s their first release since 2017’s Grace Street and the Canadian-American band have already released two singles to accompany it. Those are the already popular radio hit, Locomotive and the latest, One More Chance.
According to Exclaim, Big Wreck frontman Ian Thornley has described the highly-anticipated album as a “no bulls**t return to loud rock n’ roll.”
The album drops on Aug. 30 through Warner Music. It can be pre-saved and pre-ordered here.
One More Chance is now available through all major streaming platforms.
The band’s late-rhythm guitarist, Brian Doherty, died after a lengthy battle with cancer on June 5. The rest of the band decided to continue as a trio and will dedicate their Aug. 9 show at Bluewater Borderfest in Sarnia to their fallen comrade.
The band will donate $2 to the Canadian Cancer Society for every ticket sold for the upcoming benefit concert.
Tickets for the upcoming North American tour go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. ET.
Additional tour dates and information can be found through the official Big Wreck website.
