Ed Robertson states, "It's the Last Summer On Earth... Again! It's not a doomsday prediction; it's a call to action. We sincerely hope this won't be the Last Summer on Earth, but just in case, we're going to ROCK like it is!!"
The 2015 Last Summer on Earth Tour coincides with the release of the band's, as yet untitled, new album due out on Vanguard Records later this summer. Fans that purchase tickets to the 2015 Last Summer on Earth Tour will instantly receive one track from the new album and a digital download of the full album upon release.
BARENAKED LADIES featuring (guitarist/vocalist Ed Robertson, bassist/vocalist Jim Creeggan, keyboardist/vocalist Kevin Hearn and drummer/vocalist Tyler Stewart) have sold over 14 million albums worldwide and have won eight Juno awards and earned multiple Grammy nominations. Known for such hits as "One Week," "Pinch Me, "Brian Wilson," "If I Had $1,000,000" and many more, the band also penned the theme song for the hit CBS series, "The Big Bang Theory." Their latest album, Grinning Streak, debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. The album's breakout success showcased the single "Odds Are," which shot to No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The Barenaked Ladies live shows have become legendary with their hilarious on-stage banter and impromptu raps.
