Junkhouse Celebrate 30 Years of Strays with Vinyl Release & Ontario Shows

Singer-songwriter Tom Wilson gets the band back together for a quartet of gigs.

Junkhouse, the iconic Canadian alt-rock band that took the ’90s by storm, have announced a 30th-anniversary celebration of their seminal album Strays. To mark this milestone, Sony Music Canada has released a limited vinyl edition of Strays as Junkhouse embark on a special tour with four exclusive dates.

Strays was a game-changer in the alternative rock scene when it was released in 1993, catapulting Junkhouse to the forefront of the Canadian music industry. The album quickly became a classic and has continued to influence generations of music lovers and artists. Because CDs dominated the marketplace in 1993, Strays was never released on vinyl — until now.

This limited-edition release will feature the original album artwork, with additional mastered bonus tracks filling out Side 4, in this double disc deluxe package. It’s a special treat for long-time fans and collectors.

To celebrate this anniversary, Junkhouse will hit the road for a quartet of shows that promise to be unforgettable experiences for fans old and new. The band will perform the entire Strays album, as well as a selection of their other hits, creating an immersive journey through their incredible catalogue.

Strays was the album that took Steel Town around the world,” says Tom Wilson, leader of Junkhouse. “We are proud of those records and it feels great to share Strays on vinyl with our fans. It’s going to be a celebration of our music and the good memories we’ve created together.”
