Heading into their eleventh year as Canada's best ska band, The Planet Smashers will tack on another studio album to their discography next month. The band's newest effort, Unstoppable, is due to hit shelves on May 17th; the first single lifted from the disc is a track called "Raise Your Glass", the brand new video for the track can be viewed at www.unionlabelgroup.com.
Once again, under the watchful eye of producer Chris Murray (who is a member of ska giants King Apparatus), Unstoppable will be The Planet Smashers' sixth full-length album. The last proper album from the Montreal rockers was the 12-track Mighty, released in summer 2003.
Wise guys that they are, The Planet Smashers will tour behind Unstoppable in a very extensive way. Beginning in North Carolina on April 29th, the 23-date tour behind the upcoming album will take the band on their first trip to the Maritimes in over 2 years. The majority of the tour with openers The Know How and The Peacocks, is concentrated in Ontario and the band's native Quebec.
