Stream: Sam Roberts Band celebrate 15th anniversary of ‘Chemical City’ with new edition

The vinyl edition of the album drops on August 13

Sam Roberts Band have shared a new edition of their renowned album, Chemical City, in honour of its 15th anniversary.

The original album, which marked Sam Roberts Band’s sophomore release, was recorded in Australia with producer Mark Howard in 2005, before being finalized in Montreal with producer Joseph Donovan and released on April 11th, 2006.

This new special anniversary edition of Chemical City is remastered and features The Lost Side, which is made up of four previously unreleased bonus tracks: “Fall Before You Finish,” “Major Minor,” “The Cathedral,” and “Step Inside.”

“Somewhere in all of the chaos of creating the album, a few of the songs were left behind,” Roberts explains of The Lost Side. “Either unmixed, unfinished or lost… The truth is that there is a fourth side with songs and characters that complete the story.”

While the digital edition of the album was released today via Universal Music Canada, you can pre-order new LP editions of Chemical City (Redux), which drops on August 13th, 2021.
