“If I was Rob Ford, I’d be smoking this CD. That’s how addictive it is…” – Dominik Diamond, 965 Radio speaking about the “For King and Country” recording
Before landing in Halifax for their big New Year’s Even show at The Marquee, The Stanfields have embarked small acoustic tour, which includes six dates in Nova Scotia beginning December 5th (full list below).
This Stanfields are one of the best live acts in Canada. Don’t just take my word for it – they were voted the 2013 Entertainer of the Year award during Nova Scotia Music Week and at the East Coast Music Awards.
For King and Country is the bands latest release. It is an acoustic follow-up to the highly successful Death & Taxes (2012). On the acoustic project, vocalist Jon Landry said “it was our collective desire to return to the core of what makes our band tick”. Landry also assures the long-time Stanfields fan base, who have been blown away at live shows, that “we will continually attempt to peel the paint off the walls of your local tavern, legion, youth centre or arena. We haven’t gone soft. In fact, I think we went harder. We hope our fans enjoy listening to For King and Country as much as we did making it, as a group of friends jamming in a cottage over a few nights full of whiskey, cheer and song. Exactly the way we started our band in the first place.”
