CANADIAN band The Barenaked Ladies are heading to Birmingham on their latest tour.

With more than 14million albums sold, multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations, the world renowned rockers released their 15th studio album Fake Nudes in November via UMC.

The new album features 14 freshly minted tracks including catchy lead single ‘Lookin’ Up’ written by BNL frontman Ed Robertson, Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra) and Sam Hollander (who has co-written with Weezer, Fitz amd The Tantrums and Train).

Ed Robertson said: “I’m incredibly proud of this collection of songs.

“This is a record where all band members shine.

“It’s incredible to feel so excited about something 29 years into our career.

“I’m excited to get out and play these songs live.”

Fake Nudes finds the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals) in top form, capturing the rock icons’ incredible camaraderie and musicianship that stand as a testament to the band’s remarkable longevity.

Back on board is award-winning producer Gavin Brown, who has helmed the band’s last few projects, Grinning Streak (2013), Silverball (2015), and Ladies And Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies And The Persuasions (2017).

Fake Nudes features songs written by Ed Robertson, Kevin Hearn and Jim Creeggan.

The Barenaked Ladies will be at the O2 Institute in Birmingham on April 23. The show starts at 7pm.
