The Sadies announce new CD

Monday, July 29, 2013 – "Internal Sounds," the new album from The Sadies, will be released Sept. 17 on Yep Roc

The album's lead track, The First 5 Minutes, can be heard online. In celebration of the album, The Sadies are currently in the midst of a Canadian tour.

Recorded in Toronto, the 11-track album was produced by The Sadies' Dallas Good (guitars, organ, vocals) and mixed by Peter J. Moore. The album also features band members Travis Good (guitars, fiddle, vocals), Sean Dean (bass) and Mike Belitsky (drums).

"There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn't suffer from a deadline or budget," said Dallas Good. "We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for 20-plus days. By the end, we'd spent every dime we had and used up every favor. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn't want that this time."

Formed in Toronto in 1994, the band has released 16 studio albums, including 2010's "Darker Circles."

Songs on the CD are:
1. The First 5 Minutes
2. So Much Blood
3. The Very Beginning
4. Starting All Over Again
5. The Very Ending
6. Another Tomorrow Again
7. Another Yesterday Again
8. Leave This World Behind

Northern Passages CD review - Northern Passages
In some ways, The Sadies' "Northern Passages" album explores what may have happened had The Byrds had taken country-rock to its ultimate extreme point. But the country part of this equation is in short supply, for the most part. It isn't until the hot-picking "Through Strange Eyes" that this music sounds truly country. "God Bless the Infidels" is even more traditional, with its mostly acoustic sound. This lesser-country-ness is because psychedelic rock is »»»
Internal Sounds CD review - Internal Sounds
The Sadies have always been a reliable outfit when it comes to releasing new records, one of several Canadian bands - Blue Rodeo, the Skydiggers and the Tragically Hip among them - that have found a special kinship with classic Americana. Yet, if their star hasn't risen as high as it ought to, it may be caused in part by the fact that they're frequently loaned their talents to others, mostly playing back-up band for Neko Case, John Doe, Andre Williams and Mekons front man Jon Langford. »»»
Darker Circles CD review - Darker Circles
More than some contemporaries, The Sadies record Albums. Less important to the Toronto band, it seems, are individual songs. What is most apparent when listening to any album from The Sadies - brother guitarists Travis and Dallas Good, drummer Mike Belitsky, and bassist Sean Dean - is that they craft 30- to 40- minute visions of sound: kicking drums, rumbling bass lines and guitars that swirl psychedelic and alt.-country influences and flavors into a concoction that is immediately identifiable. »»»
