Beloved Canadian rock icons, Billy Talent, are readying for a busy 2020; starting with the release of their brand new single, “Forgiveness I + II.”
The single, a soaring 6-minute opus, delivers Billy Talent’s signature thunderous metal guitars and Ben Kowalewicz’s iconic vocals but also allows for an exploration into the world of prog-rock in its second half. The single was produced by the band’s own guitarist and JUNO Award Producer of the Year nominee, Ian D’Sa.
With the release of “Forgiveness I + II,” Billy Talent has also begun to announce a European spring tour dates that include stops in the UK, Luxembourg, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, and Hungary.
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
