Royal Tusk Announce Mammoth Canadian Tour

Posted on Apr. 12 2016

Rock group Royal Tusk are busy packing their bags, getting their van tuned up, and swapping out those winter tires for a mammoth Canadian tour, including stops with Collective Soul. In support of their full-length debut, DealBreaker, out May 6th with Cadence Music, the quintet will trek across the country this April and May with over 27 dates locked in, and more to be announced soon. Full details can be found below. The band is set to release a new track, Curse The Weather, on April 22nd, and in the meantime check out the stellar live video for the song below.

DealBreaker is produced by the award-winning Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Monster Truck, Arkells, Billy Talent), and features 11 new songs, including the first single, Fever. To truly experience DealBreaker it is best to sit back and listen to it in its entirety. With a broad spectrum of songs, each one will draw you in from the bands raw energy on Curse The Weather, the anthemic sing-along choruses of Soon, or Ian Thornley of Big Wreck’s massive guitar solo on the track So Long The Build Up. Pre-order the album and download Fever instantly HERE.

Royal Tusk is comprised of previous fellow bandmates Daniel Carriere and Sandy MacKinnon (bass), from beloved JUNO-nominated Edmonton band, Ten Second Epic, along with Quinn Cyrankiewicz (guitar), Calen Stuckel (drums) and Mike James (keyboard/guitars). After touring extensively and sharing the stage with artists including Big Wreck, Dear Rouge and Metric, Royal Tusk is ready to hit the road this spring!
