About the record:
The Adventures of Ben Blank is a collection of nine tracks including irresistible melodies, rich harmonies and insightful lyrics with the distinctive Sam Roberts Band sound. It was recorded at Giant Studio in Toronto, ON.
Blank is the narrator of Sam Roberts Band’s eighth full-length album, and he’s at once a familiar figure and an unknowable spectre —a man in a constant state of creation, simultaneously ancient and endlessly reborn.
The album will also include the focus track, “The Ballad of Ben Blank,” which serves as the album’s stomping introduction, and the band’s most recent single “Picture of Love,” which peaked at #11 on the Canadian Alternative Rock charts. Written by Sam Roberts, “Picture of Love” is a refreshing dose of warmth with guitars effortlessly woven through an irresistible melody.
The Adventures of Ben Blank will be the band’s first new album since 2020’s All of Us. The album garnered critical praise and achieved notable recognition, including a JUNO nomination for Rock Album of the Year and being listed among the top 10 highest-rated albums of that year by Uncut Magazine.
