Just a week after they finished their 9-date tour of Ontario, The Sadies will be jetting off to Amsterdam to begin a series of dates in Europe. Then just four days upon returning to their homeland, the members of The Sadies will pick up their Canadian tour once again. October and November will see the four-piece hit both the Maritimes and the Western side of the country.
The Toronto band will be promoting their newest full-length album 'Favourite Colours' (with Canadian spelling and all!). The self-produced record was released this summer to the delight of fans and critics both, bringing more of The Sadies "surf, garage, country, rock" music to the table.
'Favourite Colours' is the band's fifth studio album, their debut being 'Precious Moments' released in 1998. Taking a spot as backing singer on the album was Neko Case, now very famous for her solo work and her involvement in The New Pornographers. You can listen to a few of The Sadies' songs, and watch the video for 'Flash' (from 2001's 'Tremendous Efforts') at the band's official site: HYPERLINK "http://www.thesadies.net" www.thesadies.net.
