The album marks the band’s first release since Gord Downie’s death in 2017. On their website, the band refers to this release as ‘bittersweet‘. “We are, sadly, never going to have the chance to put out new stuff.” says bassist Gord Sinclair, “For us, in our minds, this is new.”
The album will be available just in time for the May 2-4 long weekend. You can read the story of how Saskadelphia came to be here
