Fresh off a string of sold out dates with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Shad announces his own headlining tour in Canada, with seventeen stops including his hometown of London, Ontario.
On October 15, 2013 Shad will release the much anticipated follow up to his Juno Award-winning album TSOL, titled Flying Colours via Black Box. The new album is packed with charming, quick witted rhymes mixed with soulful hooks, and is self-described as “an album about everything, as per my custom, but most of all, I wanted to explore success and failure.” Thus, honest rhymes about life and social issues are entwined with clever pop culture references; a sense of gratitude and pride takes centre stage. Flying Colours is available for pre-order at www.shadk.com starting this Thursday, August 15.
Tickets for the upcoming tour, which kicks off in Toronto, Ontario and ends in Victoria, British Columbia, are on sale this Thursday, August 15 through local retailers and online at www.shadk.com. A special pre-order bundle including the CD and concert ticket will also be available.
