Sackville fuzz-pop artist Lucas Hicks is set to head out on an Eastern Canadian tour this fall, with his first stop entertaining in front of a hometown crowd.
Hicks will perform at George’s Roadhouse on Saturday, Sept. 14, followed up by shows in Moncton, Halifax, Fredericton, Saint John and Montreal over the next two weeks.
Throughout his tour, Hicks will preview material from his sophomore release The Coast//Bad News and will have a limited run of specialized silk-screened CDs for sale on the road.
Staying true to his lo-fi, fuzz-pop roots, the new album was recorded in various Maritime locations including The Quarantine in Port Grenville, NS – home of Colleen Collins and Dave Trenaman of Construction & Destruction. The new album not only features guest appearances by Collins and Trenaman, but also newly-minted Sackville resident Jon McKiel.
Hicks was inspired to begin writing scrappy, catchy, pop songs while growing up in Sackville listening to local legends such as Shotgun & Jaybird, Baby Eagle and Julie Doiron.
