NASHVILLE, TN. / LONDON, U.K. — (24 June, 2024) — Corb Lund yesterday wrapped a month-long UK and European tour with a headline show in Kilkenny, Ireland in addition to supporting The Dead South on their European tour, which saw him playing in Germany, France, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Speaking on the tour, Lund shared, “The Europe and UK tour has been outstanding. Thanks to The Dead South for taking such great care of us across the continent and thanks to all their audiences who were digging our weirdo cowboy music. And thanks to our English people who turned out in droves and were off the hook. We’ll be announcing additional dates for early 2025 so stay tuned for details. Sorry it’s been so long and thanks for knowing ALL the words!”

Lund released El Viejo in February via New West Records. The 11-track set was produced by Lund and recorded entirely in his living room in Lethbridge, AB with his band The Hurtin’ Albertans. El Viejo is Lund’s first album of original material since 2020’s critically acclaimed Agricultural Tragic, which was named an album of the year by the readers of No Depression.

Met with similar acclaim, Uncut Magazine awarded El Viejo an 8/10 rating and deemed it their “Americana Album of the Month,” while Holler described it as “a commendable blend of raucous tales and hard-won truths,” praising the album’s “unpinnable energy – it’s all at once slick and swaggering, yet jubilant and jaunty.”

Much like his music, Lund is decidedly hard to define. The western Canadian singer-songwriter is an elusive artist — onstage, offstage, and in the studio — seamlessly weaving between the outlaw country, Western, and indie-folk realms with an honest curiosity and rowdy devotion to each. He was raised with the tried and true DIY sentiment of “if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself” launching his career recording in his basement, printing his own shirts, booking his own tours, being his own manager and publicist… whatever it took to get it done. He toured for years with the indie-metal band the smalls, and later turned his sights to writing Western songs, creating a unique and quirky hybrid writing style along the way. He has received multiple CCMA, JUNO, and international award nominations and wins. In 2022, Lund won his 14th career Canadian Country Music Award and made his second appearance at the historic Grand Ole Opry earlier this year as well. A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come.
