Leeroy Stagger will be releasing his 7th studio album “Radiant Land” on May 15th through Gold Lake Records/Universal Music Canada and he'll be hitting the road for a string of Canadian tour dates in support of the album, starting in Regina on May 4th. Stagger recently signed a 2 record deal with Danny Goldberg's Gold Lake Records (The Cranberries, Tom Morello, The Hives) and "Radiant Land" is his first album to be released through Gold Lake.
Recorded in just 3 days during a break in the band’s 2011 U.S. tour at famed Nashville studio Club Roar, Leeroy Stagger continues to prove he is one of Canada’s most prolific and talented songwriters. On “Radiant Land”, Stagger’s subject matter remains solidly based in the human condition. While not abandoning his unique ability to give voice to the rebel kind, “Radiant Land” finds Stagger in a more reflective tone, offering light out of the darkness in the songs “Enough Love to Go Around” and “Message of Love". The album also includes a sobering political view of his home province of Alberta’s push for nuclear energy in the title track. All of this without sacrificing his ability to pull the best out of his band; who are certainly not afraid to lean more towards rock than roots when needed.
Over the years, Leeroy Stagger has shared the stage with plenty of talented musicians, including The Pixies, Los Lobos, Tegan and Sara, Ron Sexsmith, Joel Plaskett and George Thorogood and his songs have received placement on the hit TV shows Greys Anatomy, Sons Of Anarchy, Degrassi and Heartland. He has garnered an international fan base after relentless touring both home and abroad. It is simply a matter of time before Stagger joins the likes of Ryan Adams, John Hiatt and Steve Earle as an ambassador for North American Roots Rock n Roll.
