Weak Size Fish plot End of Summer tour with shows in Charlottetown, Halifax, Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton and St. Andrews.
Fredericton’s seven-piece reggae-dub band Weak Size Fish is about to hit the road for their 2019 End of Summer tour with shows in Charlottetown on Aug. 31, Halifax on Sept. 6, Fredericton on Sept. 13, Saint John on Sept. 20, Moncton on Sept. 21, and St. Andrew’s on Oct. 5.
“We’ve been making a huge effort to take our performance to new stages and new audiences outside of New Brunswick. We’ve got even more in the pipeline and I’m excited to see how far we can push ourselves as a completely independent group,” said bassist Andrew Thomson.
As the title of their upcoming album The Drift suggests, life is constantly guiding us all in new directions. This is no exception for Weak Size Fish who reinvented themselves as a reggae-dub outfit following a five-year break. The content of the album reflects upon this concept, and was written as guitarist and vocalist Nick Mazerolle travelled and lived on the west coast of Canada for several years.
“The effort we put into writing, recording, producing, and marketing an album ourselves is something I look forward to everyday,” said Mazerolle. “These shows are a great opportunity to check out some of the new things we’ve been working on”.
For several of these upcoming dates, Weak Size Fish will be sharing the stage with Juno nominated hip hop artist Ghettosocks, and Fredericton’s own, Monark.
The band’s latest single Lost Lagoon was released in May 2018. They also have two studio LPs to their name: Shakedown (2012) and Off We Go (2009).
The Drift will be released in the spring of 2020.
