Tricky Woo Hits the Road in Support of New Album

Published: 2005-09-13
Montreal psych-garage rock band extraordinaire Tricky Woo is hitting the road with a vengeance this fall to support the release of its fifth studio album and first since reuniting last year. Entitled First Blush, the record was released domestically on August 30th by Last Gang Records, the influential indie that is the current Canadian home for both Metric and Death From Above 1979.

First up for Tricky Woo will be a tour of Western Canada with Ian Blurton's knobs-on-ten rockers C'mon and fellow Montreal boys Starvin Hungry. Then, after a couple of weeks off to recuperate, Tricky Woo and Starvin Hungry will be back at it for a trip 'round Southern Ontario.

There'll also be a couple of one-off shows for the renowned road warriors, namely in Toronto at that city's upcoming and somewhat troubled Ear to the Ground Festival (with labelmates DFA1979) and in the 'Woo's hometown of Montreal halfway through the band's cross-Canada trek. One thing is for certain: all shows on this tour will rock mightily. Here are the dates:
