Sam Roberts Wrapping Work On Next Album

Published: 2005-05-02
Stationed down in Australia for a goodly portion of 2005 so far, word comes that the Sam Roberts Band is nearly done work on their next album. When it's all mastered, track-listed, and packaged with a shiny new album cover (perhaps a Eucalyptus tree as a partner to the We Were Born In A Flame? shot?), the as-yet-untitled effort will be Roberts' second full-length album.

According to the band's website (, they set up their own studio in the land Down Under, and were having a grand old time recording the tracks live-in-studio. Apparently the new album will contain songs inspired by the experience of "Being far away from home, in a strange place with an incredible wealth of deadly creatures and great coffee".

Besides a smattering of dates around Australia, it appears that the Sam Roberts crew has been busy in the studio. That and taking rather professional pictures of all the animals Australia has and Canada doesn't. For anyone interested in seeing the bearded Canuck in a warm embrace with a "snake", the photos can be viewed in the "media" section of the Sam Roberts website
