Cabin Fever breaks out at The Playhouse

by on October 22, 2012

This November, award-winning singer Corb Lund kicks off a coast-to-coast Canadian tour in Halifax, and rolls into The Playhouse on Sunday, November 18. Cabin Fever, Lund’s most recent release on New West Records, is his highest Canadian Billboard top 200 debut, hitting #1 in its first week.

The JUNO Award-winner and seven-time Roots Artist of the Year winner at the Canadian Country Music Awards wrote most of the twelve track album whilst hunkered down in a remote cabin an hour outside Edmonton, inspired by crude life events – a broken relationship and the death of his uncle. Backed by his longtime band, The Hurtin’ Albertans (guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Grant Siemens, upright bassist Kurt Ciesla, and drummer Brady Valgardson), the band recorded loose and live, with almost no overdubs.

Cabin Fever offers a portrait of a survivalist preparing for the apocalypse (“Gettin’ Down On The Mountain”); a tale of a rural man losing a woman to the allure of New York City life (“September”); an ode to his vintage BMW motorcycles (“Mein Deutsches Motorrad”); the broken-hearted anthem “(You Ain’t A Cowboy) If You Ain’t Been Bucked Off”; new drinking songs such as “Drink It Like You Mean It” and “Pour ‘Em Kinda Strong”; the yodelling introduction and physicality of “Priceless Antique Pistol Shoots Startled Owner”; and another throwback to his punk days (when he claimed membership in the speed-metal band The Smalls), the desire to date “The Gothest Girl I Can.”

Tickets for the Corb Lund are available at The Fredericton Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
