Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Weakerthans: John K. Samson (guitar); Stephen Carrol (guitars); Jason Tait (banjo); Greg Smith (bass guitar).
  • Additional personnel: Izabella Budai (flute); Michael Barth, Julie Penner (trumpet); Tyler Greenleaf (trombone); Shawn Dealey (snare drum).
  • The Weakerthans never broke up, but simply took four years to record REUNION TOUR--their fourth full-length and second for Epitaph Records. REUNION TOUR features all the hallmarks that have made this band one of Canada's finest: hook-laden songs confident in their instrumental economy and structural directness; literate lyrics, and melodies that lend the simple musical backdrops intelligence and weight. The album was recorded in a factory in a Manitoba winter during off-hours, but you'd never know it, as these songs smolder with a passion and wit that belies their frigid beginnings.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "On REUNION TOUR, John K. Samson's imagistic descriptions of loneliness, desperation, and yearning...are fleshed out with chiming guitars and warm synths."

Uncut (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s rich in detail and psychological nuance as a short-story collection, ranging from the existential still life to wildly imaginative pieces..."

Alternative Press (p.172) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "REUNION TOUR further cements the Weakerthans' status as legitimate rock 'n' roll tastemakers."

No Depression (p.101) - "The band goes for melodically sympathetic rock arrangements, with some guitar crunch and moog whirr."
