CA, U.S. (Top40 Charts/ Sony / Bmg Import) - CHANTAL KREVIAZUK will hit the road with Five For Fighting
for a series of U.S. tour dates in advance of the release of her new GHOST STORIES album. Due out May 1 in America via Nettwerk America/Red Distribution, it features the lead single "All I Can Do," which was the No 1-researching song at Hot AC radio in Canada last year.
The tour dates kick off April 17 on the West Coast and will take CHANTAL on a month long cross-country trek. These dates follow a run of shows in her home country of Canada of which the Winnipeg Free Press (2-15-07) said, "...Chantal delivered a down-to-earth and sparklingly human performance." And the Star Phoenix (2-16-07) added, "the show was neither pop nor rock but something more substantial than the former and more restrained than the latter."
GHOST STORIES marks the multiple award-winning singer/songwriter's fourth studio album. Written entirely by Chantal and her husband Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace (who also produced GHOST STORIES), it was recorded in their own home. Through the process, the two shared a creative space with their dogs and two young children-charting new ideas and pecking away at songs during the course of the day before hunkering down to really make progress on the tracks together under the cloak of night. When completed, the album was mixed in studio by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Bravery, Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley).
While other artists tend to mellow as their career progresses, CHANTAL found that she was crafting her most driving work with GHOST STORIES. Unlike her earlier work, the majority of this album was written to the rhythm-with the piano riff emerging first and providing the foundation for the songs. While it also features an utterly captivating melody, it is not hard to imagine a track like "All I Can Do" being born of the driving piano that lies below.
