w/ Canadian Rock Band Texas King
Hosted by Kim Cyr
Presented by NOW and THEN Magazine
The band made their first stop in Canada in Hamilton, ON on November 9th, with more stops in London, ON on November 10th, Charlottetown, PEI on November 14th, Halifax, NS on November 15th, Moncton, NB on November 17th, Montreal, QC on November 18th and Parry Sound, ON on November 20th, among many others.
The tour follows the band’s most recent EP, Capsize. The EP encompasses stories of reckoning, redemption, nostalgia, and hope that see Texas King’s Jordan Macdonald (Vocals & Guitar), Melvin Murray (Drums), and Phil Spina (Bass) follow up from where their 2021 EP, Changes, left off. It includes Texas King’s hit single “Whatever You Break,” a driving power ballad, which peaked at #4 on the Active Rock chart and was #1 on the recurrent chart, making it the band’s highest charting single to date. The song was produced by Brian Moncarz, along with the EP’s title tracks “Capsize” and “Rely On Me”.
Texas King has put 250,000 miles into their van over the past decade – touring all over North America alongside acts including Last Dinosaurs, and The Glorious Sons. Since 2013, they’ve been cutting their teeth on the road and in the studio, releasing music that captures the show-stopping passion they’ve brought to stages that include Vancouver’s Ambleside Festival, Ontario’s ParkJam and Hillside Festivals, and Québec’s Festival D’été.
‘’I caught up with Phil Spina of the Canadian Rock band Texas King while they were on tour with Big Wreck,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine, radio host, and host of the international Music's Journey Podcast. ‘’Texas King released their highly anticipated new EP Capsize which in my opinion is the best they have released yet! Capsize was released on July 7th via Known Accomplice / Cadence Music Group and via all streaming platforms. I am looking forward to seeing them play live once again in Toronto, on Dec 22nd, 2023.''
