Sloan streaming ‘Commonwealth,’ touring this fall (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Canadian rock vets Sloan's new album, Commonwealth, is out this week via YepRoc. As mentioned, it gives each of the four members a side of the double-LP to do with as they please. In drummer Andrew Scott's case, that's means a pretty amazing 18-minute song suite, "Forty-Eight Portraits," that includes callbacks to some of his old Sloan songs (plus a children's choir!). You can stream the whole album over at Pitchfork advance.
The band are touring this fall and while the whole trek hasn't been announced, East Coast dates include a stop in NYC on November 12 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/12) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (9/10) at noon.
