Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee, Steven Page, is not holding back with his new single, “White Noise.”

The first single off of Page’s upcoming album, Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II, takes the lessons he learned listening to the politically-charged music of the Clash and Billy Bragg in the 1970’s and 1980’s and applies them to the ever-pressing issues of race and antisemitism in the 2018 media landscape.

In a press release, Page says

“I grew up in a household where social justice was a fundamental value, and I always believed that it was a fundamental Canadian value as well as a central Jewish one.  I’ve watched how the term has been twisted and perverted by the Right over the last several years in an effort to diminish the voices of reason.”

Set to be released on September 14, Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II is the follow up to 2016 Heal Thyself Pt. 1: Instinct, in which Page explored the creative process as an artist goes through life.  As with Heal Thyself Pt. 1, Page was joined by Odds’ guitarist and songwriter, Craig Northey.  Along with cellist, Kevin Fox, the trio are currently on the road in the UK and will be hitting the road in the U.S. in the fall.  Canadian tour dates are scheduled to be announced in the fall.
