Dayglo Abortions announce a Summer tour across Canada with support from Calgary’s hardcore punks, Citizen Rage. DA is out in support of their latest record, the Rob Lawless-recorded and engineered Hate Speech, which is “chalked full of thrashing guitars, heavy bass tones and drums that kick you right in the face.”

Commenting on the album, the band states:

“This album is dedicated to the people that helped us make it. Scott Bennet and Scott Henderson, for essentially talking me into making it, then offering their studio (the lap of luxury) so we could do the pre-production work while in the middle of Covid-19 induced lock-downs. Then Rob lawless, and Terry Paholek, for allowing us to Invade their studio (The physics lab) in Edmonton Alberta, and for the brilliant work they did making it sound so good. Next is Matt Jak and Sherry Benson, and family, for inviting us into their home and putting us up in Edmonton. And finally Tyson Cale Boyd and the people at The Starlight for putting on the show that paid our travel expenses. Well why the fuck stop there, The Edmonton Jak’s for always rocking out with us, and all of you for supporting through the years. Cheers to all of you.”

Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
