The Damn Truth, the celebrated Montreal rock ’n’ roll band, have just announced a Sept. 10 show in Toronto at the storied venue El Mocambo before launching a U.K. tour in October.
The Damn Truth are Lee-la Baum (lead vocals, guitars), Tom Shemer (lead guitar, vocals), PY Letellier (bass, vocals) and Dave Traina (drums, vocals). The band’s third album Now or Nowhere showcases their definitive sound and explores the deeper side of the band, current times, and everything else in today’s tumultuous world. In addition, three noted Grammy Award winners are featured on the album: Bob Rock, Vance Powell and Nick DiDia.
Baum says, “I believe that we are here on this planet to connect with one another and leave this world a better place once we’ve left it. That is our mission in every Damn Truth concert — to connect and share love wherever we go.”
And that’s a lot of love: The band have circled the globe, playing across Europe and the United States. They have opened tours for ZZ Top, The Sheepdogs, Styx and Rival Sons, sold out the legendary Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, and had one of their songs featured in an ad for Yves Saint Laurent perfume.
With a signature rock ’n’ roll sound, compelling vocals, and gripping lyrics, The Damn Truth’s music energizes and inspires audiences around the globe. The band looks forward to connecting with audiences at the legendary El Mocambo before heading back over the pond.
