CORB LUND ANNOUNCES FULL EUROPEAN TOUR THIS SPRING

After a short run last January Canadian roots-country singer/songwriter Corb Lund will return to Europe to further promote his latest output.

An ambitious, stylistically diverse and frequently surprising collection, “Things That Can’t Be Undone”, finds Corb Lund pushing his wry observations, darkly biting tales, rural balladry and keen storytelling into musically and thematically new terrain, resulting in what many have called the best album of his accomplished career. Recorded with his long time band The Hurtin’ Albertans, the album is a self-assured and mature set of songs that pairs Lund’s characteristically sharp songcraft and mix of earnest Americana, rollicking honky tonk and rousing alt-country with ‘60s rock, soul, and some Eastern psychedelia.

The record has received rave reviews in the US, Canada and UK with MOJO writing, “It’s great credit to both Lund and his versatile backing band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, that such see-sawing through genres can sound so much like a singular piece of work.” NPR hailed it as “the high mark of a long career” in their “Songs We Love” premiere of the powerful “Sadr City,” a tragic tale about the Siege of Sadr City, the first big flare-up of sectarian violence in Iraq after Mission Accomplished. The song continues Lund’s tradition of military songs that he began in with his 2007 album, Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier! Rolling Stone Country, who also premiered the Stax Records-steeped album opener “Weight Of The Gun,” a sort of Louis L’Amour Western tale crossed with Motown, recently singled out Lund for their November “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” feature and declared the album is “poised to help the singer-songwriter reach an even wider audience.” In Popmatters’ 8/10 review they said, “Melodically engaging and narratively compelling, Things That Can’t Be Undone furthers the case for Corb Lund as one of the best contemporary country songwriters.”
