A HOT TICKET presentation
Halifax’s Sloan is one of the most important rock bands to come out the '90s Canadian alternative scene. From their shoegaze/Britpop-influenced Smeared, to their anthemic Navy Blues, and their take on pop perfection, One Chord to Another and Twice Removed, and after an unprecidented 12 albums(!), Sloan has never held back on exploring its sound.

This quartet, whose lineup remains unaltered since 1991, looks to blow the lid off Partridge Hall for their PAC debut.

In 1991 bassist and vocalist Chris Murphy and drummer Andrew Scott met while studying at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and with the addition of Patrick Pentland on guitar and vocals and Jay Ferguson on guitar, formed Sloan. A year later the band made their recording debut on the Halifax, Canada CD compilation Hear & Now before releasing their debut EP Peppermint (1991) on their own label Murderecords. In 1992 Sloan signed with Geffen Records and released their full-length debut Smeared.

The band’s 1994 follow-up Twice Removed, despite the lack of promotion by Geffen Records due to artistic disputes sold well in their home nation of Canada but not so well in America. The record was undisputedly simpler and more melodic than its predecessor despite the label’s best efforts for Sloan make it noisier and for them to fit into the grunge scene. The album was named “The Best Canadian Album of All Time” by one poll and revered by many other and the band supported the album with a relentless tour of Canada thereafter.
