Our Lady Peace To Kick Off US Tour October 19th

Our Lady Peace -- Raine Maida (vocalist), Duncan Coutts (bass), Jeremy Taggart (drums), Steve Mazur (guitar) -- will be kicking off a US headlining tour starting October 19th in Solana Beach, CA to promote their seventh studio album, "Burn Burn," which was released July 21st via Coalition Entertainment (Records) through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group. While the trek is set to conclude October 31st, more dates are being added throughout the rest of the year.

The album, which debuted at #41 on the Billboard "Top 200 Albums" chart, has already produced a hit single with "All You Did Was Save My Life," thanks to heavy rotation at four different formats: Alternative, Top 40, Triple A and Active. The video stars fellow Canadian, Shenae Grimes, of "90210" and "Degrassi: The Next Generation" fame.

"The End Is Where We Begin" is the second single is now being serviced to radio and has recently been added to stations nationwide including KDGE/Dallas, KTBZ/Houston, WKRK/Cleveland, KRBZ/Kansas City, WPBZ/West Palm Beach and WGRD/Grand Rapids. A video for the song will make its premiere in the next couple of weeks.

Primarily self-produced in lead singer Raine Maida's Los Angeles home studio, "Burn Burn" marks the longest period between studio albums for Our Lady Peace. It also signifies a sonic and philosophical rebirth. The band now enjoys a creative and professional freedom that they haven't experienced since the release of their now classic debut.

"I think about the way we made 'Naveed,'" Maida recalls. "We were just starting, we knew nothing about the business and we had no expectations. It was four guys in a room just trusting their instincts. We went back to that. ‘Liberating' doesn't really even sum it up."

Our Lady Peace's live show is as good as it's ever been and was on display during July's sold-out shows in New York City and Los Angeles that had Billboard gushing, "OLP proved their readiness as arena-worthy superstars during the opening night of the Canadian act's US tour." The performance in Los Angeles left the Troubadour none-too-pleased with the damage OLP incurred. Maida victoriously climbed up to walls to the second floor during "All You Did Was Save My Life," leaving a heap of destruction in his wake. A fan caught the stunt on video and it can be seen on YouTube.
