Nazareth announce first Canadian tour with new singer

Scottish rockers Nazareth have announced their first Canadian tour with new singer Lintin Osborne, who recently replaced retired founding member Dan McCafferty.

The group will launch a 12-show run June 25th in Duncan, British Columbia, with a series of dates across Western Canada scheduled to July 19th in Edmonton, Alberta.

The tour comes on the heels of news that the band will release a new album, “Rock ‘N’ Roll Telephone”, in the UK on June 9th.

The band’s 23rd studio album and first since 2011’s “Big Dogz” features what may be the last album with McCafferty, who retired from the group last year due to health issues, including C.O.P.D. ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

“Rock ‘N’ Roll Telephone” will released as a standard CD and double LP, as well as in a Deluxe Digipack edition will include a second disc with two additional studio recordings and five live tracks.

Nazareth formed in December 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland, and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide.
