Single Mothers chart Canadian tour
by Dine Alone

London, Ontario punk act Single Mothers are playing a number of shows this month in support of their sophomore LP Our Pleasure . The band will perform in Quebec City, Hamilton, London, and Toronto alongside pop-punk group Little Junior, hooking up with the Flatliners / A Wilhelm Scream tour for shows in Ottawa and Montreal. The band will also play one of the sold out Alexisonfire reunion gigs in Toronto, which were rescheduled from earlier this year.

The band's lineup will shift depending which of these shows you see. The group's been touring recently with bassist Riley Simpson and guitarist Peter Landi backing frontman Drew Thomson and longtime drummer Brandon Jagersky. The Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec City shows will feature former Dirty Nil bassist Dave Nardi performing with the group (Simpson will move to drums while Jagersky's temporarily away). Studio guitarist Justis Krar will join the group for their Toronto shows as well.

The band also recently took part in an Audiotree Live session. In it, they performed songs from Our Pleasure, 2014's full-length Negative Qualities , and their 2011 self-titled EP .
