NEW ALBUM, ANTHEM, TO BE RELEASED JUNE 18 MSN CANADA HOSTS EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE CANADIAN TOUR BEGINS OCTOBER 2 IN VANCOUVER
Toronto, ON – Pop-Rock trio HANSON are excited to announce the release of their new album and world tour. Titled ANTHEM (3CG Records), the new record will be released on June 18. The ANTHEM WORLD TOUR begins July 18 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and makes its way throughout Canada beginning October 2 in Vancouver and ending in Moncton, New Brunswick on November 17.
The infectious new single “Get The Girl Back,” which features the band’s signature soulful Pop-Rock sound, will be introduced to Canadian fans through the buzzworthy music video featuring Kat Dennings (Two Broke Girls) and Nikki Reed (Twilight/Thirteen). The video is a narrative tale that features the band performing in a packed club, backed by an old-school brass section that accentuates the retro aesthetic of the song. In the U.S., “Get The Girl Back” premiered online on VH1.com on April 4, and on-air on the VH1 Top 20 Countdown on April 6. HANSON also performed the single on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on April 9. Today, MSN Canada is hosting the Canadian premiere of the video. Watch the video here.
ANTHEM was produced and written by the band and was mixed by Tom Lord-Alge. It features a more guitar-driven sound, pulling from a series of harder hitting Rock and R&B influences from James Brown to early Michael Jackson, and AC/DC.
2013 marks the 21st anniversary of HANSON, which will be celebrated on June 17 with two sold out shows at Irving Plaza in New York. The band has been nominated for multiple Grammys, released five studio albums, spawning a string of hit singles, including their 1997 #1 smash “MMMbop” and have sold over 16 million albums worldwide.
