With only a couple of weeks to go until show date, the generous souls at Sonic Concerts are giving one lucky MusicNerd.ca reader a pair of tickets for Billy Talent‘s upcoming show at Casino New Brunswick on Monday April 15. Their special guests for the show are Sum 41, Hollerado and Indian Handcrafts.
How to enter the contest, you wonder? That’s a great question!
Send an email to ken [at] musicnerd.ca telling me how many letters are contained in Billy Talent’s band name. Do not include the space between the two words. Just looking for the amount of letters. Nothing else.
The lucky winner will be notified by email on Friday April 12.
Released in September, Billy Talent’s fourth studio album, Dead Silence, became the band’s third consecutive release to enter the Canadian album sales charts at #1 and fourth consecutive album to be certified gold. Dead Silence also made impressive debuts around the world. The record debuted at #1 in Germany which is the second time the band has topped the German charts (Billy Talent II debuted at #1 while the band’s third album debuted at #2). The record also bowed in at #2 in Austria, #3 in Switzerland, #12 in Finland and #23 in the U.K. The album was recorded in Vancouver, Los Angeles and Toronto and is the band’s first self-produced record with guitarist Ian D’sa taking overseeing the recording from the producer’s chair.
“It’s all about the energy, fire, charisma and passion as they tear through crowd-pleasing anthems”
– Kerrang Magazine (U.K.)
Since finishing the recording of Dead Silence, Billy Talent have spent the past few months playing some of Europe’s biggest rock festivals and more recently, headlining a major European tour that took them throughout the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Finland as well as two dates in Russia.
