THE DAMN TRUTH, THE CLASSIC ROCK BAND FROM CANADA ANNOUNCE NEW DATES IN EUROPE APRIL AND MAY 2022!
“We have a HUGE Rock n Roll family and it blows our mind to see you all singing along and sharing stories of how our music has somehow touched your lives…”
Due to several European COVID restrictions at the end of 2021, The Damn Truth had to cancel their entire European tour last minute. It was at that last minute, that they had received the dreadful message of the cancelled tour while they were making their way to the airport in Canada!
However, the Canadian four piece started 2022 with a bang! An amazing support tour with King King through the UK as well as a few headline shows in Leeds, Bristol and Southampton. The reviews of that tour are raving and the band can’t wait to come back to Europe this April. The Damn Truth have extensively toured Europe and the United States in the past, opened tours for ZZ Top (and partied with Billy Gibbons in his pyjamas), The Sheepdogs, Styx, and Rival Sons, sold out the legendary Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, sold out the Corona Theatre in their hometown of Montreal, and even had one of their videos featured on the official Janis Joplin Facebook page. The band will be promoting their latest (and third) album « Now Or Nowhere ».
Six tracks on the album were produced by legendary Grammy Award winning Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, The Cult, The Offspring) at Bryan Adams’ recording studio “The Warehouse” in Vancouver. Unable to finish the album with Bob because of COVID-19 restrictions, the band produced the remaining three songs themselves with the techniques learned from Bob Rock. For the mix, they received help from Juno Award-winning producer Jean Massicotte (Patrick Watson, The Damn Truth) who mixed “Everything Fades”; and the rest of the mixing was done by Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton), Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Rage Against The Machine), and Mike Plotnikoff (Van Halen, Cranberries, Three Days Grace). It’s worth noting there are three Grammy Award winners on this album (Bob Rock, Vance Powell and Nick DiDia).
