Summersault is now officially
Sunday June 28th 1998
After waiting and waiting to find out if this
festival would even be on, it is now official that yes, Our Lady Peace
have planned out and are ready to go with their Summersault tour. It consists
of bands that Raine, Mike, Duncan and Jeremy have met along the way, on
their the road to canadian and international success. They include Garbage,
I Mother Earth, Moist, Sloan, and the Crystal Method. An official website
for the festival can be found at http://www.summersault98.com.
"When you are lucky enough to travel around with
your music, it is always nice to sit back and reflect on the road that
brought you to where you are standing. By watching, playing with and getting
to know other musicians, we feel that we have been able to continue to
learn and grow ourselves." - Raine Maida
How did these bands meet up?
Garbage - This spring, 1998, while in Europe,
the band bumped into them in a hotel lobby. They all decided that it would
be fun to do a big show together. Garbage will be on the main stage August
I Mother Earth - Our Lady Peace did their first
national tour with this fellow canadian band, and have ever since been
good friends. It will be IME's first show with new singer Brian Byrn, set
in the middle of the recording of a new album.
Moist - Unfortunately, this band never made the Edgefest tour last year,
so this seemed like a good opportunity to get together and play.
Sloan - originating from the Maritimes, they
just had to join their friends on the bill.
The Crystal Method - After doing some american
festivals together, this band will definitely add some good diversity to
Summersault. In fact, they are even closing the show at Molson Park.
