Sam Roberts Band: New Album + Track

The Last Crusade by Rounder Records

My #5 artist of 2009, Sam Roberts, is back again, this time under the moniker Sam Roberts Band. Gearing up to release, Collider on May 10th via Zoe/Rounder Records, Roberts & Company work out distinctive roots-rock grooves with a surprisingly UK feel (they are Canadian.) After the release of their record, the band heads out on a nice headlining tour. Available for download and stream above is the newest track from Collider titled, "The Last Crusade." Whet your appetite and be sure to grab this album when it drops. Also, dig the behind the scenes footage from the making of the record above.
