Sam Roberts Band are a Montreal-based touring rock band who have just recorded their fifth studio album, Lo-Fantasy. “Low fantasy is a literary genre that takes place in a world very much like our own, but in which magic – or the possibility of magic – exists,” Roberts says. “It’s grounded in reality, but it’s an altered reality.” The album was produced by Youth (The Verve, Primal Scream, Propellerheads) and mixed by Dave Bascombe (Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, Santigold). They recorded the album live on the studio floor in twelve days. It helped capture the fiery spirit and urgency that have made their live shows so legendary, earning them spots performing everywhere from Letterman and Conan to Bonnaroo, ACL, Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot, and alongside heroes like the Rolling Stones and AC/DC.
