  3. The Souljazz Orchestra "Chaos Theories" LP Release International Tour The Souljazz Orchestra return with a brand new studio album for our troubled times. Their 9th studio album, ‘Chaos Theories’, was released on Do Right! on September 13th in Canada. The Souljazz Orchestra "Chaos Theories" LP Release Party w/ special guests TBA Saturday November 30th, 2019, 9:00 PM Doors 8:00 PM The Velvet Underground - 508 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON Tickets: Ticketweb / Eventbrite / Soundscapes / Rotate This Facebook Start shootin' fast, ask questions later Too many times, get drunk on power Bully civilians, watch 'em cower Always known for their uncompromising social and political messages, the Canadian collective hit harder than ever on 9 new tracks, outing the hypocrisy of modern day politics, police brutality in North America and the everyday struggle of the working man. Led by chief songwriter and arranger Pierre Chrètien, the band continue to evolve their sound, drawing on a broad palette from their trademark Latin, Afro and Caribbean styles to some of the UK’s political sounds of the early ‘80s, the era of The Clash, The Police, 2-Tone and frontline reggae. "We were basically messing around with the idea of creating our own brand of 'Afro-punk' ”, remembers Chrétien, “something with the aggressive, in-your-face energy of punk rock or free jazz, but still backed by the hypnotic, pulsating grooves of tropical music." The album takes the listener from carefully targeted sonic missiles to more reflective thought-provoking moments. ‘Police The Police’ starts the offensive: “I wrote this after my neighbour was beaten to death by Ottawa police during an arrest,” explains Chrétien. “The authorities downplayed the incident and the officers were working the next day like nothing had happened.” ‘House Of Cards’ takes a thinly veiled swipe at the current US administration on an infectious disco groove: “lies within lies within lies... like so many Russian dolls”; ‘Boat Rockers’ challenges us all to look beyond accepted norms and ‘General Strike’ documents the frustrations of the working class as the pay gap gets increasingly wider; ‘Slumlord’ shines the spotlight on dodgy landlords while the brilliant closer ‘Well Runs Dry’ laments modern day living, with its confused pace and mundane obsessions, remembering simpler days gone by. Leading their field for 17 years, the three-time Juno Award-nominated band have constantly moved forward, and remain an in-demand live band worldwide. They have played to audiences in close to 30 countries across North America, Europe, and Africa and have shared bills along the way with heavyweights such as Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Femi Kuti. Mastered by The Carvery, ‘Chaos Theories’ will be released on LP, CD, cassette, and all digital formats on September 13th worldwide (Do Right / Strut Records), The band tour Europe and Canada during September, October and November 2019. http://www.souljazzorchestra.com/ Canadian Tour Dates Sep 20 - Babylon, Ottawa ON Nov 02 – Blacksheep, Wakefield QC Nov 03 - Blacksheep, Wakefield QC Nov 21 - La Petite Boîte Noire, Sherbrooke QC Nov 22 - Groove Nation, Montréal QC Nov 23 - L'Anti, Québec QC Nov 28 - Starlight Social Club, Waterloo ON Nov 29 - This Ain't Hollywood, Hamilton ON Nov 30 - Velvet Underground, Toronto ON House Of Cards https://youtu.be/WyXOXXy10oE Police the Police (Official Video) https://youtu.be/YVeHFEpdClo
