Screaming At Traffic shares 2019 Canadian tour dates

We caught up with Screaming At Traffic to chat about their Canadian tour dates.

The band has also unveiled a video for their single, “Weekend Cartoons”, check it out below

“When we were recording “Weekend Cartoons”, our producer Jordan suggested that we bring in Jenna from Mobina Galore to lay down some guest vocals.

We loved the idea and her voice helped give the song a bit of an edge.

Fast forward a couple of months and we came up with the idea for this super simple video.” – Jacques Richer

Now find out what the band is looking forward to in EVERY city across Canada that they will be touring to in the next few months!

August 4, 2019 – Sudbury, ON – The Asylum

“Birthday. When we booked the show at The Asylum in Sudbury, we found out our show was going to be the same day as the booking agent’s birthday, so we’re definitely looking forward to helping him celebrate! It’ll be a great way to meet the folks there.”

August 5, 2019 – London, ON – Rum Runners

August 8, 2019 – Toronto, ON – Bovine Sex Club

“I know I already used this already but BIRTHDAY! It’s our bass player Paul’s birthday the day of our Toronto show so we’re definitely looking forward to spending the day in Toronto and playing the legendary Bovine Sex Club that evening.”

August 9, 2019 – Ottawa, ON – Mavericks*

“Labelmates. Ottawa is going to be our first show with our label mates Oakhearts, and our pals in Jeffrey Lost Control. This is the first time we’ve had consistent dates on tour with another band and we’re stoked to hit some dates with them!”

August 10, 2019 – Thetford Mines, QC – Sergent Peppers Pub*

August 16, 2019 – Montreal, QC – Turbo Haus*

“Poutine. Every Canadian I’ve ever met knows and loves poutine, and you bet you’ll find us hunting some down in the Poutine Capital of the world. We’re also getting our show at Turbo Haus in part sponsored by a local brewery, Le Trou du Diable, so we’re definitely looking forward to drinking some great micro brews!”

August 17, 2019 – Waterloo, ON – Harmony Lunch**

August 29, 2019 – Saskatoon, SK – Black Cat Tavern

“Rivalry. I’m kidding, but there definitely does seem to be a friendly rivalry between Manitoba and Saskatchewan… Maybe it has it’s basis in the CFL? Either way we’re super stoked to be back rocking it up at the Black Cat!”

August 30 – Edmonton, AB – The Tavern on Whyte

“Whyte. WHYTE AVENUE IS THE PLACE TO BE! We’re playing on Whyte Ave at the Tavern, but there are so many great places up and down that street, The Buckingham, The Sewing Machine Factory… It’s great to just wander up and down that street and see the craziness that is Whyte on a weekend!”

August 31, 2019 – Calgary, AB – The Palomino

“Buds. We often call Calgary a home away from home, and we mean it. On our first tour out west, we played a sweet event called Rockin’ for Dollars, hosted by BJ Killer, and it was amazing. We got a chance to meet so many people that ended up becoming good friends of ours, and we try and make a point to get to Calgary as often as we can. There are a ton of great bands and people from there, and I honestly think Calgary has one of the best scenes in the country! You can definitely catch us drinking beers (and ciders) with The Ringwalds before the show.”

September 1, 2019 – Golden, BC – The Rockwater

“Glacier. Golden is a beautiful little town. The Rockwater, where we’re playing, has a gorgeous glacier river running right behind it that runs through the town, and the entire place looks like something off a postcard. It also has an awesome BBQ restaurant that we’re definitely gonna hit up.”

September 3, 2019 – Abbotsford, BC – Carport Manor

“DIY. The place we’re playing in Abbotsford has a crazy cool D.I.Y. Feel to it, and the space is super supportive. The last time we played there we were blown away by how many people came out to support us, and how friendly everyone was.”

September 4, 2019 – Nanaimo, BC – The BAR

“Harbour. I can’t speak for the rest of the band, but I am a sucker for oceans.”

September 5, 2019 – Duncan, BC – Duncan Showroom

“Duncan. This town obviously has more to it then this, but Duncan is the other singer and guitarist in our band, and we’re playing at a place called the Duncan Showroom, and if that doesn’t crack you up a little bit, I don’t know what to say.”

September 6, 2019 – Victoria, BC – Phoenix Pub

“Commune. The last time we were in Victoria we got to stay with a couple of friends who live on a commune in Victoria. It was such a cool place to be, and met so many great people, and really set the tone of Victoria for us.”

September 7, 2019 – Vancouver, BC – Pat’s Pub

“Metropolis. Vancouver is not the biggest city we’ve ever played, population-wise, but it is super densely populated, and make it seem kind of like a giant maze. I’m stoked to wander the city a before the show and see what kind of things are hidden away! Then, of course, our show at Pat’s Pub is going to be sweet.”

September 10, 2019 – Revelstoke, BC – The Last Drop

“Mountains. We’ve only ever driven through Revelstoke, and I think stopped there for gas once, but the town looks beautiful, and I’m looking forward to watching us all try andhike a mountain after living in a van for over a month. “

September 13, 2019 – Winnipeg, MB – The Park Theatre***

“HOMETOWN! What can we say, we love Winnipeg, and we wouldn’t be anywhere without the support we get at home. So many people have been behind us since our first show, and we’ve gotten tons of great opportunities from it, like on September 13th, when we play night one of SOS Fest at The Park Theatre, with the legendary Good Riddance! Make sure you pick up tickets for both nights so you don’t miss Cancer Bats, and Single Mothers on night two (alongside a ton of great locals!)”
