The long wait is over for those outside of Canada, with the release of The Lazys latest single, “Nothing But Trouble”, to the rest of the world, with pre-order for their new album, Tropical Hazards, also now available, out on 4 May via Golden Robot Records on digital, CD and vinyl.
At the same time, the band has announced their European tour dates in support of the album release with a run of 6 dates locked in across Germany kicking off in Stuttgart on May 29 and finishing in Frankfurt five days later, plus shows in Amsterdam and London in early June.
Tropical Hazards is a high-octane, hell-raising rock ‘n roll riot, written in Canada, where the band now resides, and Australia (where they’re originally from) throughout 2017 with Ian D’Sa (Billy Talent) and produced by D’Sa and Eric Ratz (Big Wreck, Danko Jones, Monster Truck). It resulted in a 10-track album that’s unabashedly outrageous, packed with classic songs about wild nights, pretty girls, heartbreak, and resilience, and picking up where The Lazys left off in 2015 with their Top 10 Canadian singles, “Shake It Like You Mean It” and “Black Rebel”, with the first single from Tropical Hazards, “Nothing But Trouble” currently sitting at #13 and on the rise.
“Nothing But Trouble”
“Little Miss Crazy”
“Half Mast Blues”
“Young Modern Lightning”
“One’s Too Many”
“Louder Than Youth”
“Can’t Kill The Truth”
“Take Back The Town”
Having recently relocated to Toronto full-time, the band can certainly be considered honorary Canadians. And the journey that began 10 years ago in Australia is still just getting started. Says Matty, “Since the early days, being in a rock band is all we’ve ever wanted to do. We’ve shown how much love we can offer to people if they give us a chance and Canada has done that for us. It’s kind of insane when we think about all that support. But now it’s time to show the world.”
And show the world they will, as they take their rowdy, high-energy shows out on the road in support of Tropical Hazards – watch out!
