After two sold-out shows in 2007, Tegan and Sara will return to Halifax to perform in support of their upcoming album Sainthood (Sire Records) at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium on Wednesday, January 27 at 8 p.m. Special guest is An Horse.
In stores October 27, Sainthood, Tegan and Sara’s sixth release was recorded at Sound City in Los Angeles and Two Sticks in Seattle. The album’s 13 tracks were produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) and Howard Redekopp (The New Pornographers, Two Hours Traffic) and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Primal Scream, Marilyn Manson). The album, named after a Leonard Cohen lyric, addresses secular themes of devotion, delusion, and exemplary behaviour in the pursuit of love and relationships.
Since their debut in 1999 with Under Feet Like Ours, twins Tegan and Sara Quin have released five albums, including The Business of Art (2000), If It Was You (2002), So Jealous (2004) and The Con (2007) and received three JUNO Award nominations, including 2007 and 2005 Alternative Album of the Year and 2006 Music DVD of the Year. They have toured with Neil Young, The Pretenders, Ryan Adams The Killers and Death Cab for Cutie and performed at major international festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.
