The Grapes Of Wrath Celebrate the release of NEW SONGS with the help of a few friends!
CBCMusic.ca & CBC presents AN INCREDIBLY SPECIAL EVENT OCT. 30 @ MOD CLUB (TORONTO, ON)
‘SINGLES’ – A NEWLY RELEASED COLLECTION OF THE BAND’S HIT SINGLES PLUS TWO NEW TRACKS FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM OF ALL NEW MATERIAL TO BE RELEASED SPRING 2013.
TORONTO, ONTARIO – On October 30, 2012, one of Canada’s most beloved sonic commodities, The Grapes Of Wrath, are throwing a party at Mod Club (Toronto, ON) to celebrate the hits of their past, their new musical lease on life, their new Singles collection (out now) and a newly recorded album which will be released Spring of 2013.
October 30th will also mark the 20th anniversary of that unfortunate night when one of Canada’s most beloved bands imploded after a sold out show at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom. All of the usual break up ugliness followed but, in time, wounds were healed and – fast forward to 2012 – The Grapes Of Wrath’s founding members find themselves back at it like no one could ever have imagined.
Rich Terfry (aka Buck 65) will be hosting the evening, Julie Doiron will be the opening act, and there will be a slew of iconic Canadian artists lined up to perform selections from Singles alongside The Grapes Of Wrath. As a nod to the awesomeness of this concert, CBCMusic.ca and CBC Radio will be filming and streaming the performance in its entirety.Guests include Great Lake Swimmers, Hayden, Whitehorse, Howie Beck, Lily Frost, as well as a handful of others that we can’t formally announce. What we can say, however, is that this will be a concert that people will be talking about in hushed tones in the days to follow, speaking those dreaded words “I can’t believe you missed it!”
