With over 14 million albums sold, multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations, world renowned rockers Barenaked Ladies are excited to announce the release of their fifteenth studio album, FAKE NUDES, on November 17, 2017 via UMC. The new album features fourteen freshly minted tracks including catchy lead single “Lookin’ Up” written by BNL frontman Ed Robertson, Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra) and Sam Hollander (who has co-written with Weezer, Fitz & The Tantrums and Train). Beginning Friday September 8, 2017 Fake Nudes will be available to pre-order on CD or digitally.
States Ed Robertson, “I'm incredibly proud of this collection of songs. This is a record where all band members shine. It's incredible to feel so excited about something 29 years into our career. I'm excited to get out and play these songs live.”
Fake Nudes finds the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals) in top form, capturing the rock icons’ incredible camaraderie and musicianship that stand as a testament to the band’s remarkable longevity. Back on board is award-winning producer Gavin Brown, who has helmed the band’s last few projects, Grinning Streak (2013), Silverball (2015), and Ladies And Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies And The Persuasions (2017). Fake Nudes features songs written by Ed Robertson, Kevin Hearn and Jim Creeggan.
To coincide with the release of Fake Nudes, Barenaked Ladies will kick off their Fake Nudes tour of Canada in November, the UK leg starting April 18th 2018 in Salisbury and concluding at The Roundhouse in London on April 27th. VIP pre-sale with exclusive access and packages will go on sale at 9am on September 6th with the general on sale at 9am September 8th.
