It’s been a banner year so far for Gloryhound, who kicked off 2012 as opener for Deep Purple on their tour through Atlantic Canada, played a series of high profile shows during both Canadian Music Week and Junofest, licensed their song “Electric Dusk” for upcoming feature film Love Me, and have recently signed with leading Canadian independent record label and distributor eOne Music Canada. Gloryhound launched their summer tour schedule with a Canada Day performance in St. John’s, NL, opening for I Mother Earth, followed by this past weekend’s highlight show at Magnetic Hill (near Moncton, NB), where they shared the stage with some of the most popular acts in Canadian rock, including Three Days Grace, I Mother Earth, Arkells, My Darkest Days and Nickelback.
Comprised of Evan Meisner (lead vocal/rhythm guitar), David Casey (lead guitar/bg vocal), Shaun Hanlon (drums) and Jeremy MacPherson (bass), Gloryhound have built a solid fan base with their high-powered live shows, touring relentlessly over the past couple of years throughout the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario. Along with their own headline shows, Gloryhound have opened shows for Thin Lizzy, Sam Roberts, Big Wreck, Hollerado, Drive By Truckers, CJ Ramone (of the Ramones) and The Sheepdogs, among others.
Gloryhound’s Electric Dusk EP delivered a nomination for Rock Recording of the Year at the 2012 East Coast Music Awards, while the title track/debut single “Electric Dusk” spent more than five months on the national radio charts, reaching #14 on Mediabase Active Rock charts and #24 on the BDS Neilson Billboard Canadian Rock charts.
Gloryhound will take the stage at Roseland Cabaret for the Aug. 2 kick-off to the annual New Glasgow Riverfront Jubilee, and will rock the hometown crowd at the Alderney Landing outdoor stage on Aug. 4 for Halifax Natal Day celebrations before hitting the road with The Cult for their Canadian tour, Aug. 22 through Sept. 2.
