The Planet Smashers Turn Ten

Published: 2004-09-13
Montreal's Planet Smashers are set to take the country by storm this fall. The ska-punk band has 10 Canadian dates lined up, with four taking place in the province of Alberta. The tour kicks off in Burlington, Ontario on September 12th, finishing up on the opposite side of the country in Vancouver on October 14th. All of the Planet Smashers' dates will be played with New Jersey band Catch 22.

During their jaunt across the country, the Planet Smashers will be supporting their newest release called 'Ten'. Though bands usually promote their new studio albums, 'Ten' is actually a DVD retrospective of the Smashers' decade long career.

'Ten' houses all of the Planet Smashers' videos, 13 live songs, interviews and "randumb shenanigans". In addition to this 'Ten' also includes the entire series of the 'Catman' cartoon (15 episodes), for which the band provided the soundtrack. The DVD basically encompasses everything from the band's first demo 'Meet The Planet Smashers' (released in 1994) to 2003's 'Mighty'.

The Planet Smashers' upcoming dates:

September 12 Burlington - Moe's Tavern
October 05 Thunder Bay - Warp 9
October 06 Winnipeg - West End Cultural Center
October 07 Regina - The Exchange
October 08 Edmonton - Starlite Room
October 09 Calgary - The Den
October 10 Canmore - Drake Inn
October 11 Jasper - Pete's Club
October 13 Victoria - Legends
October 14 Vancouver - The Brickyard
