Emerson Drive Deliver Hits Package, Tour in Early 2011
In February 2011, Canadian country group Emerson Drive will celebrate a decade together by releasing their first-ever greatest hits CD and hitting the road for a 33-city tour. 'Decade of Drive' arrives in stores on February 8, 2011, the same day the band kicks off their Decade and Driving tour in Victoria, British Columbia.
"This tour is a celebration and a thank-you to our fans," says lead vocalist, Brad Mates. "We have spent 10 years out on the road sharing our music across North America. We can't wait to take the party back out on the road. It's exciting for us to show what we have accomplished so far, and give fans a look at the next decade. We have new music that just adds to the fun."
In addition to many of the band's timeless chart-topping hits, 'Decade of Drive' will feature a selection of unreleased tracks, including the CD's first single, 'When I See You Again,' a touching ballad that reflects the band's emotions in the aftermath of losing their friend and bassist Patrick Bourque, who took his own life in September 2007, a month after leaving the band.
A deluxe version of the CD will also be released, featuring exclusive enhanced video content, previously unreleased acoustic songs, a specially-recorded new song and interview footage. As an added bonus, two backstage passes to meet the band on one of their Decade and Driving tour stops will be included!
