It wasn’t the greatest playoffs, although the first round was pretty special, but the Kings have really cool sweaters, so why not them….party on LA.

Summer is almost here….and we have a lot going on in the next few months:
Our Canadian Tour in support of John Mellencamp starts up in a little over a week and it will include some stops along the way where we will be playing our own shows (Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Parry Sound, Sherbrooke). We are also playing some shows with John in a couple of provinces where we have never performed (PEI and Newfoundland). In August we will be back on the road by ourselves in the North East of the USA. Check out the Tour Dates page for all the relevant info.
Amazon will continue to sell digital downloads of The Wilderness for $5 throughout the month of June (for USA customers only). Also, we continue to sell our five album box set of The Nomad Series for just $25.
The Nomad Series book is about to go to the printer, which means that we should have it in hand by mid-summer at the latest. We will be mailing it out to our Clubhouse Subscribers as soon as we get it, but in the meantime, if you are not a Clubhouse member, this is your final chance to join. We have extended the Clubhouse term to January 1, 2013. With the subscription you get all of the digital content on our website (many hundreds of recordings) as well as The Nomad Series book. The book is going to be quite special: it’s a 140 page full colour, coffee table art book, bound in a linen hard cover and it will contain cds of the four volumes of The Nomad Series. It is designed by our friend Enrique Martinez Celaya who also did the artwork for The Nomad Series. It will be a very limited edition and when they are gone, they are gone. So you can guarantee that you will receive a copy by joining The Clubhouse. You can check out all the details about The Clubhouse Subscription here.
The Tour Diary will be starting up again next week, so be sure to check back frequently to see how our adventure on the road are coming along.
In case you missed it the first time…here is a live performance on CBC Drive of me, Margo and Jeff performing Fairytale from The Wilderness, enjoy:

Amazon will be selling The Wilderness as a digital download for just $5 throughout the month of June (USA customers only). The album has received some very nice reviews:
“…a gorgeous new album…” – NPR All Songs Considered
“Each word and note of this album feels so deeply percolated and thoughtfully placed
that it’s hard to believe that this is the fourth record the experienced Canadian altcountry band have released in 18 months.” – Daily Telegraph
“Consider this music a salve for the soul – restful, resigned, pretty and pensive… and yet as fragile as it is fleeting.” – Blurt
Also, please check out the complete Nomad Series box set if you haven’t already:
“Cowboy Junkies may never step out of the shadow of their seminal The Trinity Session recording, but there’s no reason the ambitious opus of the Nomad Series couldn’t otherwise serve as their masterwork.” – Paste
