And that’s not everything! It wouldn’t be summer without Big Sugar turning it up so dig the Canadian dates we got coming your way!
Big Sugar’s back on Canadian soil after an amazing trip to Germany to play the Rockpalast Crossroads Festival at Harmonie-Bonn this past Saturday. Rockpalast was on hand to film the set and the episode will be airing late May/early June. We’ll keep you posted on that.
Germany, you rocked us hard. Thanks for the beer, Beethoven and the good times. You’re a beautiful country and we’re seeing you again real soon…that’s a fact.
YARDSTYLE, The acoustical sounds of Big Sugar, is 13 tracks of languidly-paced, percussion-heavy acoustic reggae…a spiritual groundation.
This heavy, heavy musical statement, runs the gamut from classics like “Turn the Lights On” to brand new cuts, “Calling All The Youth” and “Police Bway a Vampire.”
Featuring reggae legend, Willi Willias and an extended family of brethren, this is the heartbeat sound of Big Sugar.
Dig it in stores and on iTunes April 15th
Don’t worry Canadian friends, Big Sugar isn’t leaving you out in the cold! With two more shows on the horizon and an album release right around the corner, we promise you we’re just getting started…but more on that later…
Big Sugar is set to rock the stage at Caledon Day on June 14th
Almost 10,000 people rocked last year’s event, shopped the vendor fair, and enjoyed the awesome food. 2014 promises to be as spectacular as the fireworks finale that closes the event every year.
And of course, it wouldn’t be Canada Day without a jam from our brethren. The band is headlining the Magnificent River Rats Festival on the Athabasca River in Alberta on June 30th.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer so stay tuned, cause as you know, we’ve always got more up our sleeve!
