Today, in celebration of their nomination, the band is thrilled to announce a run of dates in Alberta leading up to and around the 52nd Annual JUNO Awards.

The 6-date run, which follows a sold-out Western Canadian tour and features support from Calgary metal band Trench, will kick off on March 6th in Banff, making stops in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Calgary and Red Deer, before wrapping up in Edmonton with a show at The Buckingham on March 12th.

Tickets for the Alberta run will go on sale tomorrow, Thursday, February 9 at 10 am MT/12 pm ET. For a list of all upcoming Canadian tour dates and to purchase tickets, please visit:
