Corb Lund Band Tours the West

Published: 2004-11-19
Totting their roots-country music around the western half of the country this winter is The Corb Lund Band. The Edmonton, Alberta band has a total of 26 Canadian dates currently scheduled that will take them from November 2004 all the way into January 2005. During their western tour, Corb Lund and Co. will extensively tour British Columbia and Alberta, with a few dates in Saskatchewan.

On this tour The Corb Lund Band is out supporting two albums, sort of. The band's last full-length release came in the form of 2002's 'Five Dollar Bill', which features 12 of Lund's original tracks. Though the record came out two years ago, it managed to get the band nominations at both the 2003 Junos, CCMAs, CIMAs, and WMCAs, and won two awards at the 2004 CCMAs for 'Independent Group or Duo of the Year', and 'Roots Artist or Group of the Year'.

Lund also re-released his nearly 10-year-old debut album again this year. Titled 'Modern Pain', the remixed version of the album made an appearance on the National Canadian Campus and Community Radio Charts in 2004. Without any regard for timelines or continuity, The Corb Lund Band has released a total of three full-length albums at somewhat confusing intervals.
