Country singer Corb Lund is bringing his Winter Campaign 2016 tour to Mission on Sunday, Jan. 31 at the Clarke Theatre.
Recorded with his long-time band, The Hurtin’ Albertans (Grant Siemens on electric guitar and lap steel, Kurt Ciesla on bass and Brady Valgardson on drums), Things That Can’t Be Undone is a new mature set of songs that pairs Lund’s sharp songcraft with a bevy of new sounds, thrusting together his mix of Americana, rollicking honkytonk and alt-country.
The end result is a lively and loose record influenced heavily by 1960s and ’70s rock and country.
On Washed-Up Rock Star Factory Blues, Lund offers an uproarious response to Johnny Paycheck’s classic Take This Job and Shove It.
In the powerful Sadr City, an Eastern-influenced psychedelic guitar riff sets the scene for a tragic tale about the Siege of Sadr City, continuing Lund’s tradition of military songs that he began in 2007 with Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier!
Loss is a prevalent theme on the record and takes several different forms throughout.
The Clarke theatre is located at 33700 Prentis Ave. in Mission. Tickets are $42.50 and are available at all Ticketmaster locations or online at ticketmaster.ca.
