Sloan have become an iconic Canadian rock band since bursting onto the scene back in 1991, during alternative rock's initial hey day.
Still rocking 20 years later, the now Toronto-based band performs at The Townehouse starting at 8 p.m. on Oct. 7 as part of a tour to promote their new album, Commonwealth.
The album, which follows 2011's The Double Cross, is divided into four parts, all written by one of the band's members — Jay Ferguson, Chris Murphy, Patrick Pentland and Andrew Scott.
“Ultimately, what makes "Commonwealth" so special, and so distinctly Sloan, is how the fragmented approach in fact only serves to underscore the veteran band's extraordinary strengths, showcasing the particular ingredients without ever losing sight of the sum of the parts,” a press release said.
Tickets to the concert, which cost $25 each, are available by visiting The Townehouse's website, www.thetownehouse.com. The event is only open to those over the age of 19.
