THE STANFIELDS Release “Death & Taxes”

Posted: September 18, 2012

THE STANFIELDS Death & TaxesBen Franklin has been credited with the quote "but in the world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes", but I'd like to add one more certainty if you'll permit... fans are going to LOVE the new album from Nova Scotia band The Stanfields.

In stores and on-line today "DEATH & TAXES" is jammed with rockin' goodness. All The Stanfields style you've come to dig – kicked up a notch by legendary producer Mike Fraser who's previous credits include projects with AC/DC, Aerosmith and Metallica to name just a few.

We caught up with the fellas at the Sonic Temple in Halifax and as luck would have it they were working on my favourite track “Invisible Hands”.

Jon Landry, Jason MacIsaac, Jason Wright, Craig Eugene Harris and the originally elusive Mark Murphy were all present and accounted for.

Be sure to watch for some eyeopening revelations...(you think you know don't!)

And be sure to catch The Stanfields in a town near you. Following their record release at The Seahorse tonight (09/18/12) the band will be hitting the road with stops across Canada that include 5 Maritime dates. (see full tour schedule below)
