With a new album looming on the horizon, Toronto's Illuminati will live it up this August, touring from North Bay to Victoria. Although not officially released until this fall, the freshly pressed Cheap Powers EP will be available at all of the hard-rock band's upcoming gigs.
After they tear the Horseshoe's roof off with Death From Above 1979 this Saturday, the three-piece will launch their 11-date Someone You Trust Tour on Friday, August 5th. While it is possible for just one band to bring the loud, pounding, raucous rock, it's always so much better when three do it at once.
Accompanying the Illuminati across Canada are Toronto band From Fiction, who will be releasing their debut full-length, Bloodwork, in the "very near future". Tagging along for half of the tour is Edmonton wonder-duo Whitey Houston, out supporting their brilliant brand new self-titled debut.
Check out music from the Illuminati, From Fiction, and Whitey Houston in one convenient place: NewMusicCanada.com.
