Canadian icons The Sadies will be releasing a vinyl-exclusive, 16-song compilation album tomorrow. You can pre-order HERE.
The Toronto-based band will drop Archives Vol. 1 Rarities, Oddities and Radio: 1995-2019 on March 27 via Dine Alone Records.
Here is the band explaining how this record came together:
“This album is compiled of outtakes, soundtracks, radio performances, demos, our first ‘45’ and more, most of which were never commercially released. These sessions were recorded mostly on tape, mostly long ago, and mostly in a single live performance. With hundreds of songs in the vault after over twenty years, we wanted to revisit them and maybe find a home for some of the more interesting things. It’s also a bit of a celebration (or memorial), with this year marking our 25th as a band. This collection may be an eclectic assortment of our material, but we are, after all, a rather eclectic group.”
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
