Toronto's Lowest of the Low are set to tour their new album 'Sordid Fiction' around the country. The five-piece has a total of 11 Canadian dates, which Hamilton act The Marble Index will be opening. Kicking off on October 15th in Montreal, the tour will finish up November 13th in Victoria, BC, where the band will then carry on to the United States.
The band's third studio album, 'Sordid Fiction' was released a few weeks ago on September 21st. Recorded in the band's hometown of Toronto, it became Lowest of the Low's first studio album in a decade. Mixing for the 12-track record was done by Adam Kasper, who has also worked with Pearl Jam and The Tea Party.
Together for thirteen years, Lowest of the Low debuted in 1991 with 'Shakespeare My Butt', which is one of the most successful indie albums ever released in Canada. The album moved over 10,000 units without the support of any music label whatsoever. Once upon a time Lowest of the Low went on hiatus (in 1994 to be exact), but they got back together in 2000. 'Sordid Fiction' will be the band's second release since they reformed (they released a live album in 2002).
