GrimSkunk is touring western Canada this fall and they’ll be rocking out at The Northern in Fernie on Wednesday night.

The psych-punk-rock band’s spirit is described as pure, raw energy and emotion, amongst a whirlwind of punk angst and outrage, and the hopeful, almost hippy idealism of those who dare to dream.

Now touring to promote their newest album ‘Set Fire!’ recorded in Sydney, Australia, the group will travel from Winnipeg to Vancouver in the month of October, with a total of 10 stops. Set Fire! Is said to be a musical journey to the other side of the world, focusing on the band’s use of spontaneity and instinct during the creative process.

Dearly Beloved from Toronto will join GrimSkunk along the way as the opening act on the tour, in support of their latest album ‘Hawk vs. Pigeon.”
