Calgary, AB's masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry WOODHAWK announce their 2018 Canadian "Magnetic North Tour" in support of their latest full length album "Beyond The Sun" released April last year and recently named the #12 most played release on the Canadian College Radio Top 20 Loud Charts for 2017 (Source: Earshot). The tour will see the trio trek across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba plus performing for the first time in Ontario and Quebec (dates listed below).
The band comments:
"We're excited to be hitting the road again and heading out East this time. We haven't played past Winnipeg yet and we're stoked to finally make it out there."
WOODHAWK's debut album "Beyond The Sun" was produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) to follow their 2014 self-titled EP. Made of equal parts 1970's Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, WOODHAWK are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.
'Beyond The Sun' album stream available on Bandcamp at https://woodhawk.bandcamp.com.
The album is available on digital, vinyl and CD.
