Award-winning rock act Sam Roberts Band, recently released their compelling new single “Projection” via Known Accomplice / Cadence Music Group to radio and all streaming platforms.
“Projection” is a dynamic alternative rock tune that blends introspective lyrics with the distinctive Sam Roberts Band sound, capturing the essence of self-discovery and vulnerability. With its infectious chorus and captivating verses, the single becomes a canvas of personal reflection for all.
“When the lines between fact and fiction have become so blurred, how do we measure our truest selves? What can we rely on? Hold on to?,” said Sam Roberts. The new single “Projection” is seemingly a song with more questions than answers but, at its heart, there is a clear statement that love is still the one constant we can live by.”
In addition to the new single release, Sam Roberts Band are also excited to announce their 2024 North American tour, which will be the band’s first full tour since 2018, due to the pandemic-cancelled previous tour dates. The journey will kick off in their hometown Montréal, QC on February 2nd at Théâtre Beanfield, and includes stops across Canada and select US cities.
