Barenaked Ladies are ‘Fake Nudes’ at Roundhouse

Barenaked Ladies, who release their fifteenth album ‘Fake Nudes’ in November, are bringing their energetic live show back to London’s Roundhouse, performing at the venue on 27 April 2018 as part of a UK tour.

The Canadian band (comprising lead singer and guitarist Ed Robertson, bassist Jim Creeggan, keyboard player and guitarist Kevin Hearn, and drummer Tyler Stewart) have reunited with longstanding producer Gavin Brown for the upcoming LP.

“I’m incredibly proud of this collection of songs,” reveals Robertson. “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.”

The first of those songs to be released is ‘Lookin’ Up’, written by Robertson, Better Than Ezra frontman Kevin Griffin, and Sam Hollander (whose songwriting credits include collaborations with Train, Weezer, and Fitz & The Tantrums).

But Robertson isn’t the only band member to write songs on the follow-up to this year’s Ladies and Gentlemen, with Hearn and Creeggan both contributing to the new album’s 14 tracks.

Several of those tracks will no doubt be performed when the Barenaked Ladies tour reaches the UK next year.
