BARENAKED LADIES NEW ALBUM SILVERBALL AVAILABLE ON JUNE 2ND LAST SUMMER ON EARTH TOUR BEGINS ON JUNE 5TH IN COLUMBUS, OH April 7, 2015 - After 27 years together, over 14 million albums sold and multiple Juno Awards and Grammy nominations, SILVERBALL, Barenaked Ladies fourteenth studio album, finds the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals) firing on all cylinders. “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,” states Ed Robertson. “This is the first record since our debut, Gordon that was written with no hand-wringing, second-guessing, insecurity or self-doubt,” Robertson asserts. Available on June 2nd, SILVERBALL was produced by the band’s longtime friend Gavin Brown (The Tragically Hip, Metric) who helmed their previous project, 2013 Grinning Streak. The album’s thirteen tracks showcase the band’s growth, while still delivering a flurry of counterpunches and a wisecrack or two, in true BNL fashion. “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.” Watch behind the scenes footage on the making of SILVERBALL here: https://youtu.be/WLOD7_HR96I Following the release of SILVERBALL, Barenaked Ladies will be heading back out on the road for their 2015 Last Summer on Earth Tour.
