One of Canada’s most iconic bands, Blue Rodeo will release their 14th studio album, 1000 Arms on Friday, October 28. The group will also head back out on the road in 2017 performing news songs for fans with 30 concerts scheduled in 23 cities, beginning January 11, 201
1000 Arms was recorded over the winter of 2015/16 at Blue Rodeo’s Woodshed Studios. The album shares its name with the Jim Cuddy-penned song inspired by a podcast Jim was listening to.
The 12-track record was co-produced and engineered by Tim Vesely, a founding member of the Rheostatics. Jim and his longtime bandmate Greg Keelor credit Vesely with helping influence the sound of the new album. The engineer had been listening to some of the band’s older records and commented that Jim and Greg weren’t singing together as much as they used to. The revelation caught the band off guard but the result brought the band back to what has always been one of their strengths.
In the thirty years since forming, Blue Rodeo has sold over 4 million albums, won countless Juno awards, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, been named to the Order of Canada and have been honoured with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award.
