In-Flight Safety on Canadian Tour

Published: 2004-07-08
New Brunswick's Mount Allison University found students John Mullane, Brad Goodsell, Glen Nicholson, and Jon Sheen meeting for the sole purpose of playing music. More than just a band emerged. "Collaborating musically with this band is so intuitive. Sometimes an entire song is created and no one has called out any chords nor are any words spoken. We spar back and forth with new ideas and this creates a creative atmosphere within which I constantly feel inspired," said John Mullane on his band mates in In-Flight Safety.

The band has a five song EP "Vacation Land" which is available. The band hopes to expand the EP into a full length album by the end of the year.

Beginning this weekend (July 10) the Sackville band In-Flight Safety will launch a tour that begins in Toronto and works it way to the eastern provinces where it will end where it all began at Mount Allison University.

These guys are brilliant. Sadly I think North America is lagging behind in promoting this genre of music lately, as compared to the British and the rest of Europe...hopefully somebody will point out my ignorance by suggesting a few bands :)

Saw a lot of the In-Flight's shows in 2002/2003 but sadly have not been back to Canada since. Can anyone comment on some recent shows?
