Montreal's multi-award winning rock band Sam Roberts Band will return to Halifax this fall in support of their upcoming sixth studio album, including the first single "If You Want It," for a performance at the Halifax Forum Multi-Purpose Room on . Special guest is Adam Baldwin.
Sam Roberts is one of the most distinguished and decorated Canadian artists of the new millennium. Regarded by his first record label as an “uncompromising rock purist,” Roberts recorded and independently released his first EP in 2001.The Inhuman Condition included the breakthrough hits “Brother Down” and “Don’t Walk Away Eileen” and became one of the bestselling independent releases in Canadian music history.
The success of The Inhuman Condition landed Roberts a deal with Universal Music and in 2003 he released his debut album, We Were Born In A Flame. Roberts subsequently won a trio of awards at the 2004 JUNOs for Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year and Artist of the Year and multiple MuchMusic Video Awards. The 2006 release of Chemical City again garnered additional JUNO Awards. By the end of the decade, Roberts was practically synonymous with Canadian rock. Love at the End of the World, released in 2008, debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Album Charts and was certified Gold before the end of the year. Sam Roberts Band's most recent work, 2014’s Lo-Fantasy, is their fifth album from which they have toured across Canada, the United States, and Europe.
