New Sloan Album Coming Out On Yep Roc, No Connection Between Them and Elijah

The Halifax-born, Toronto-residing boys in Sloan have been called the “next Nirvana,” the “next Oasis,” and the “next Strokes,” not to mention the “next Big Thing” so many times, too numerous to count, over the course of their 15 years together. They have had a lot of success in their native land, but the big-time never came calling in the states, as the band have amassed a small, yet devoted, fanbase in the U.S. Think of them as the Canadian Blur, but without any 'Woo Hoo'-ing. Crap, that’s another label, which is very unfair to the band. Plus, as a live band, they blow Blur out of the water.

After 15 years and seemingly a different label for every release (DGC, the Enclave, RCA and Koch, just to name a few), you would think Sloan would be worn down by the music industry bullshit. But that does not seem to be the case. They are back on a new U.S. label, Yep Roc (Billy Bragg, Apples in Stereo, Radio Birdman), and are about to release a monster record on the American public. Out January 9, Never Hear The End Of It is a 2 LP/1 CD album containing 30 songs. The record, already released in Canada, is full of more hooks, harmonies, and melody then most artists achieve during their entire career. (For shame, Wolf Eyes, for shame.) Look for the band to be touring the U.S.A. in during the winter and spring. Will this be the record that makes takes them to the top of the Billboard charts? Probably not, but more than few people will surely be anticipating this record.
