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. 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.
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.
