Today, Canadian indie-rock royalty Sloan release their remarkable 13th studio album Steady on Yep Roc Records in the U.S. The album follows Sloan’s 2018 record 12 and marks the 30th anniversary of their beloved debut record Smeared, which came out October 1992.
Sloan are one of the rare bands to make it to their 13th album with all four original members who are equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. The album title is reflective of Sloan’s impressive 30-year feat, bassist/vocalist Chris Murphy explains, “they say if you want to go fast go alone but if you want to go far go together. I don’t know if there are many other bands you can name that are still making records with their original line up 30 years in. Look it up!”
Leading into the album release, Sloan released four tracks including “Magical Thinking” which Brooklyn Vegan noted as “a classic Sloan power-pop number with just a little glam to go along with its crunchy, catchy chorus.” As well as “Scratch the Surface” which was released with the first music video from the band in 10-years and “Spend The Day” which kicked off the Steady stream of new music.
Sloan have just announced a run of Canadian tour dates this fall and early next year, bringing their beloved, energetic live show across the country.
