I'd argue that the concept of "Canadian punk" is an oxymoron, but then how we would explain the Canadian punk-rock outfit Billy Talent? The four-piece band began playing together in '93 (under their old name, Pezz), and have since released five full-length albums. Their latest album, Dead Silence, debuted in September to rave critical reviews. While it took them nearly 10 years to achieve mainstream success, to-date they've received nine MuchMusic Video Awards and seven Juno Awards. And now, they're heading out on tour.
The "2013 Canadian Dead Silence Tour" kicks off on March 14, at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, BC. This is the first of 17 gigs, which span all of Canada and include stops in Edmonton, Saskatoon and Toronto. Along the way, Sum 41, Hollerado and Indian Handcrafts will act as support for varying dates. The fun comes to a close on April 13, in Montreal, QC, at Bell Centre. Tickets go on sale December 7, so be sure to check back to SeatGeek and pick yourself up a pair!
