Massey Hall presents
Constantines with special guest Chad Vangaalen
Since their explosive self-titled album released in 2000, the lasting and influential nature of the celebrated Canadian rock band is perhaps summed up best by John K. Samson: "Constantines are the best live band I have ever seen, entirely dedicated to communicating with an audience. Able to produce moments of sustained and complicated quiet, they are also one of the loudest bands I have encountered. Yet the volume is never used to repel the listener. Instead, they co-opt the sometimes aggressive conventions of rock to express the overwhelming parts of being alive, to explore the themes of community and struggle, to remind us we belong to something larger than our individual selves. The decibels tell us we are not alone."
Chad VanGaalen is a multi-instrumentalist, and celebrated visual artist, widely known for his music, illustrations and animations. His fifth full-length record Shrink Dust (2014), is partially a soundtrack for an animated science fiction feature, currently in production.
