WATCH: Bedouin Soundclash opening their 2020 tour in Victoria

One of the 2000s’ biggest bands touring in support of 2019 release, MASS

One of the most radio-played bands of the late 2000s is landing at Victoria’s Capital Ballroom for a Feb. 7 performance.

Juno-winning, Vancouver-based Bedouin Soundclash, which released the album MASS in 2019 – nine years after their previous release – brings sounds old and new to town as they kick off their 2020 North American and UK tour. Opening the Victoria show is rapper/DJ Odario Williams, who also hosts Afterdark on CBC Radio.

Best known for such early hits as “When the Night Feels My Song,” and “Walls Fall Down,” Bedouin Soundclash has updated its sound on MASS. This largely upbeat album was recorded, starting in 2016, on two fronts: in New Orleans, enhanced by the horns of the Preservation Jazz Band, and at Vancouver’s St. James Church with the children of the St. James Music Academy.

Band co-founders guitarist/vocalist Jay Malinowski and bassist Eon Sinclair, along with drummer Chuck Treece can create a catchy, sometimes trance-like sound when playing the older Soundclash material. The new songs, from “Clock Work” and “Salt Water” to “Better Days” aren’t a complete departure from the sound they made their own, but offer a more dynamic approach that will no doubt leave audiences impressed.

Tickets to this 19-plus show are $22.50, available online at eventbrite.ca or at Lyle’s Place. Doors open at 8 p.m.
