Canadian Acts Top Today’s Album Announcements

Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Destroyer and Anvil are headed your way next year.


You’d probably never catch Anvil, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Destroyer on the same bill anywhere. Except here — and only because all three have just announced new albums due early next year. King of This Town, the 10th album from BARK’s Tom Wilson, Stephen Fearing and Colin Linden, lands Jan. 24. A week later, singer-songwriter and sometime New Pornographer Dan Bejar will introduce you to his new Destroyer album Have We Met. Finally, the metal veterans of Anvil will release their latest alliteratively titled outing Legal at Last on Valentine’s Day — though the handle actually refers to weed and not what you might expect from Lips and Robb Reiner. If you don’t believe me, check out the cover art above. Then scroll down to see all the latest additions to the lineup, and visit the Upcoming Releases page for the most extensive list anywhere in the known universe.
