The Rural Alberta Advantage: Sign to new label, add tour dates

Toronto pop-rock trio The Rural Alberta Advantage just recently hooked up with the indie label Saddle Creek Records(Land of Talk, Cursive, Sebastien Grainger). The label announced that their 2008 debut full length , Hometowns will be getting a widespread re-release on July 7 in the U.S. and Canada. Actually growing up in Alberta, Canada, the group was born out of singer/songwriter Nils Edenloff's moving out of the province in '03, and later went on to inspire the band's name as well as many of the songs from their debut, 'Hometowns'.
Leading up to and past the albums re-release, the band have just announced a spring/summer tour across the U.S and Canada (check the dates below).
