Among the truths we hold to be self-evident are these: Canadian bands can play their asses off, and they can also bring the funny. No outfit hailing from north of the border embodies these paired virtues more engagingly than the Barenaked Ladies, whose fusion of hooks and yuks has resulted in more than 14 million albums sold, as well as putting myriad fannies in the seats of concert halls and amphitheatres around the world.

On the occasion of the band’s 25th anniversary, Barenaked Ladies – Ed Robertson (guitar/vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass/vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard/guitar/vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums/vocals)—are celebrating with new album ‘Grinning Streak’. The album, the band’s twelfth, is their first in partnership with Vanguard Records after self-releasing their last four efforts.

The album picks up steam via its hyper-hooky 1st single ‘Boomerang’, produced by Gavin Brown (The Tragically Hip, Metric), who handled 11 of Grinning Streak’s 15 tracks. Another session with Toronto’s Howie Beck (Feist, Walk of The Earth) yielded four album tracks: the buoyant ‘Who Knew’, the wistful ‘Smile’, the swirling ‘Off His Head’ and the chugging ‘Best Damn Friend’. Rounding out the sessions is a Mark Endert (Maroon 5, Train) super-pop re-mix of Boomerang. Indeed, the whole of Grinning Streak unfolds with the signature blend of immediacy, tunefulness and witty sophistication that made such Barenaked Ladies hits as ‘Pinch Me, Brian Wilson’, ‘If I Had $1,000,000’ and the chart-topping ‘One Week’ modern-day classics.

“Pop is a form that I love—it can be high-energy and intricate,” says Robertson of the genre the band has championed throughout the last quarter century. “When I think of pop music, I think of the Cars and Squeeze – interesting melodic rock is what I gravitate to and what I’m always striving for. I want guitar-heavy pop/rock that’s intelligent, evocative and thought-provoking. I want it to be singable and relatable, and I want there to be other layers in there for the people who want to go deeper—because not everybody does. I’ve heard so many times, ‘I love you guys ’cause your songs are just fun and easygoing.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m glad you enjoy them, but there’s a dark underbelly that you haven’t mined.’”

Indeed, there’s much more to the Barenaked Ladies than initially meets the ear. Suck on the candy-coated surfaces of Robertson’s songs long enough and you never know what you’ll encounter in their “emotional centres”, as Robertson puts it.
