Acclaimed singer/songwriter/activist Matthew Good is now set for an extensive headlining tour of North America around the release of his forthcoming album, ARROWS OF DESIRE.  Good will be performing with his full band.  The tour kicks off in Seattle, WA at Tractor Tavern on release date September 24th continuing through late November; please see below for tour dates.  Supporting Good on the US run will be Australian singer/songwriter Pete Murray, who has sold upwards of one million albums in his native Australia; Canadian support will be provided by Gentlemen Husbands. 

 

ARROWS OF DESIRE is Matthew Good‘s first original album for new label home eOne/FrostByte Media and is due out on September 24th in North America.  A single from the forthcoming album, “Had It Coming,” has just been released in Good‘s native Canada.  You can check out a performance video for the song, with footage taken from Good‘s recent sold-out show in London, here.

 

Matthew Good is a Canadian musician whose multi-platinum career has spanned nearly two decades.  From his early work with the Matthew Good Band to his most recent solo sets, Good has released nine studio LPs, three EPs, a live album, and most recently a “best of” collection, OLD FIGHTERS. All of Goodʼs full-length studio releases have achieved at least Gold status in his native Canada, and since 1999 none have debuted outside of the Top 5 (in Canada).  To date, Matthew Good has sold more than one million albums worldwide and has been nominated for 19 Juno Awards, winning 4 of them.  His most recent win was in 2011 for Rock Album of the Year for VANCOUVER.

 

Beyond music, Good is also known for his support of various causes, most notably his dedication to raising awareness regarding mental health issues (Good himself suffers from Bipolarity) and human rights. For the better part of a decade, Good has written commentary for his official website focusing primarily on the subjects of militarism, neocolonialism, US foreign and covert policy, the declination of human rights post 9/11, and his opposition to the federal governmentʼs dedication to Canadian combat operations in Afghanistan. He is an advocate of Ceasefire and has, in the past, contributed to The Guardian online.
