Amidst a North American tour in support of their latest album Sugar & Joy, Saskatchewan’s The Dead South stopped in Toronto a few days before their highly anticipated Halloween show at The Phoenix Concert Theatre. During a private event last Wednesday, Six Shooter Records presented the Regina-based band with their first Canadian Gold Single Award plaques for 2014 hit “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company” which was officially certified earlier this year.
“In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company,” the breakthrough single from Regina, Saskatchewan’s @TheDeadSouth4, is officially their first #GoldinCanada certification! The song can be found on their 2014 debut studio album Good Company.
On August 9, BreakOut West held a press conference at The Exchange in Regina, SK, to announce the 2016 festival lineup. Saskatchewan recording artist Blake Berglund was on hand for the announcement, and performed a few songs for the crowd and those watching via live-stream.
This year’s festival runs from October 13-16 in eleven venues in Regina, and features emerging talent from western Canada from multiple genres. The festival kicks off with the Western Canadian Music Awards show on October 13 at Casino Regina. This year, many Western Canadian Music Awards will also be presented at the festival showcases, extending the excitement of the awards show throughout the weekend.
Music Canada is a proud sponsor of this year’s festival. See the festival flyer below for more BreakOut West 2016 info. A full list of performers can be found here.
Festival wristbands grant access to all festival events, pending venue capacity, and can be purchased in Regina at X-Ray Records, Rebellion Brewing, and Coda Clothing. Tickets for the awards show must be purchased separately, and are available here.
Watch for keynote speakers, conference info, and additional announcements from BreakOut West in the coming weeks. The latest information will be available on www.BreakOutWest.ca
