Swan Lake

To Whom it May Concern

A petition was put together recently in order to persuade Canadian super group Swan Lake into touring. Most of you have posted on your sites about their forthcoming second record, Enemy Mine, which is due out March 24th on Jagjaguwar. In regards to touring, Jagjaguwar posted that "Swan Lake does not currently have any tour plans but is easily swayed by gold doubloons and/or enthusiastic mobs". Upon reading this, we the fans have come together to prove to the band that they definitely need to tour to support their new record.

We are urging all of you to help us in our quest. If you would post a link to this petition along with any upcoming posts about Swan Lake, we'd greatly appreciate it. Once we hit our target goal of 1000 signatures, we'll send the petition to Swan Lake's booking agent at Billions who will present the petition to the band. After being overwhelmed by the shear number of signatures, we're sure the band will want to hit the road.

Thanks for all your help.

this would be amazing. why can't there be a canadian supergroup festival. Head liners would be wolf parade and new pornographers. opening would be swan lake, destroyer, sunset rubdown, frog eyes, handsome furs, AC Newman, Neko Case and johnny and the moon. i think i would pay alot to see that.

I guess we could include BSS, but then feist would bail and it would just be a 3 hour long jam band session. I am not into that.

there are a million bands we could include. like, for example, arcade fire, plants & animals, land of talk, etc.

and swan lake's first album is terrific.

I can't wait for the Destroyer/Cadence Weapon/Final Fantasy album to come out...that is, in my fantasy. Those are three damn talented canadians as everyone knows from seeing the three of them perform together:
