Barenaked Ladies Announce UK Tour

Barenaked Ladies have announced a UK tour beginning in September which will find the group performing at Manchester’s The Ritz on 30 September.

The news comes just after the release of Barenaked Ladies’ fourteenth studio album, Silverball.  Clearly excited about the new material, Ed Robertson (guitar and vocals) commented “I think it would be fair to say if the band was collectively known as Stella, then this record would indicate the reality that Stella had indeed got her groove back.  This is the first record since our debut, Gordon that was written with no hand-wringing, second-guessing, insecurity or self-doubt.”

After 27 years as a band, multiple Grammy nominations and more than 14 million album sales, it seems that the group is still growing and enjoying the experience more than ever.  “We’re pushing in new directions—as always, I think—but it’s still unmistakably these four guys playing together, and that’s what I’m most proud of,” Robertson adds. “I put the record on and it doesn’t sound like anything we’ve ever done before, and yet it is unmistakably the new Barenaked Ladies record.”
