Canadian bluegrass band The Dead South are set to bring their foot-stomping music to Western Canada on an 18-date fall tour in support of their upcoming album Illusion and Doubt.
The album is set to be released November 18, 2016.
Illusion and Doubt is a refreshing take on bluegrass and folk, while also incorporating elements of rock, punk and classical music to the tracks.
The lead single "Boots," opens the album with an up-tempo beat and features lyrics about free-spirited love. After a short quiet prelude, the banjo and guitar pick-up will have listeners on their feet dancing. The spirited song showcases The Dead South's talent and knack for encompassing humour into their music.
Released in advance in Europe, Illusion and Doubt rose in the Denmark music charts to break the Top 10.
"We're beyond excited to release our second album, lllusion & Doubt! It represents the culmination of everything we've been up to since the release of Good Company," said banjo player, Colton Crawford. "Jason Plumb's production allowed us to get everything to sound just how we wanted it, and we can't wait for you to hear it."
The tour will kick off on November 23 at Tracks Pub in Olds, AB and wrap on December 16 at The Exchange in their hometown of Regina, SK.
