            THE STANFIELDS ARE BACK with a new album, a new tour, and as always an
            amazing sound.  Limboland is the fifth album for the Halifax-based band,
            which sees them take an unflinching look at the negative forces that threaten
            rights and liberties for all, while doing it all with their trademark swirl of guitars,
            pounding drums, fiddle and rowdy energy.

            It’s pretty obvious what The Stanfields are singing about on their explosive
            new album, Limboland  “A line was drawn in the sand by a fool with a big stick
            and tiny hands/He promised a wall, talked about greatness and dared to speak
            for me.” That has the band fired up big-time, plain-speaking and plain-rocking,
            “I’m not afraid of the world” comes the answer. The Stanfields are back, and
            ready to sing out loud and clear.

            “There’s so much going on in the world, there’s so much uncertainty, I think
            it’s important that we’re speaking in a really clear voice,” says lead singer
            and songwriter Jon Landry. The Stanfields mix traditional storytelling
            with exciting performances and an undercurrent of East Coast flavour.
            Limboland sees the group speaking out and rocking harder than ever.
