Ontario punk-rockers Billy Talent are leaving North America and embarking on an 11-stop 2012 fall tour in the UK in support of their new album, Dead Silence . I have to admit, going to a concert to hear “tracks from dead silence” has to be confusing for the uninitiated. Loyal fans of this band, which is approaching its 20th year together, won’t mind, though… that just means there will be more space to rock out during Billy Talent tour dates.

This album and show lineup mark the first time Billy Talent aren’t performing something self-titled, and it’ll be interesting to see if Silence marks a further maturation from their last three albums. Now slightly more up-tempo, with less angst in their lyrics, the group’s sound has been rounding out and long-time fans will see what the last few years have done for the evolution of Billy Talent live shows. Check out for yourself, with these two videos from their last two albums:

The length of the layoff since the last set of Billy Talent tour dates is likely to leave fans clamoring for tickets, especially on international trips where a  loyal fan base doesn’t see them often. While North American and Australian concert-goers will need to wait for future announcements of Billy Talent tour dates on their continent, fans in the UK will welcome Dead Silence with open arms.
