Hey Canmore! Join us on Saturday, June 18 as we rock out (ska out?) at the Canmore Hotel (CAN HO!!!) doors at 9 pm. Citizen Rage and The Ruminants too! Should be a good one.
Join us at Dickens on May 13 to celebrate the Belvedere CD release.
Well we’ve got a brand new CD so we best go out and play some live music to try and get you people off the internet and dancing along to it.
September 18, 2015 – Dickens – Class Action, Special Edisons, Nevertime High, Sean Hamilton and the Danger Dogs
We’re excited to playing with some of our best friends and favourite bands, and the Special Edison are going to be releasing the new album as well. This is the show to come to, we can’t wait for it.
In addition to the big CD release, we’re going to be the guesting (that’s a word now) as the house band for Late Night at the Plaza on Wednesday, September 16, 2015. Show starts at 10:00, at you guessed it, The Plaza theatre in Kensington. We’re excited to play it so we hope you are excited to come check it out.
Finally, we’re going to be playing an outdoor show at the ContainR site in Sunnyside on Thursday, September 24. We are on at 6:30 so bring the kids, cover is by donation. This will likely be your last chance of the summer to do some outdoor skanking.
All of us over at Class Action are super excited to be releasing a new EP, Serious Business, this September. It’s been a long time in the works, 3 years since our last release, and we are really pleased with how it turned out. The album has six songs, one of which you can check out not over at https://classactionska.bandcamp.com/
We’ll put up another song a little before the CD release as well so keep an eye out for that.
We took a couple months off playing shows so you may have been wondering where we’ve been, obviously you’ve been refreshing this website daily if not hourly hoping for any kind of an update. Well today, you are in luck!
First off, we do have a show coming up.We’ll once again be joining The Planet Smashers when they stop by Calgary, make sure you come early to check us out. Nov. 7 at Dickens!
Unfortunately this is going to be our pal Nathan Obreiter’s last show with us. He’s going to be a father, and has decided he needs to focus on that for the time being, so we wish him the best and while we will miss him, we are excited for him to start a new chapter in his life.
As much as I am sad to see Nate go this does present the wonderful opportunity of having only six people in the band. Think of all the room on stage, think of how much easier it will be to book shows and plan jams. I love the full sound that we have but I will say that with every additional member we have, the logistics of the band get exponentially harder.
The reason we haven’t played any shows for a few months is because we have been focusing on writing some new songs with the ultimate goal of recording said new songs into a format where you can listen to them where ever you so desire. So far we’ve got three brand new songs, and we’ve worked out a new cover that we are very excited to debut as well. I’m hoping that we can add at least one or two more to that number in the next few months and then hit the studio sometime in 2015.
We’re going to stick to the oldies for the Planet Smashers show but we’re looking to book a show or two in December or January to debut all our new material.
Lots of exciting stuff coming up for us. Hope to see you all soon.
