Windsor rockers old and new are on this week’s Active Rock Charts on Canadian radio. Mainstays The Tea Party and radio newcomers The Blue Stones are both currently in the Top 20 across the country.
The Blue Stones are hot on the charts and currently reside at #3 with the song Black Holes (Solid Ground) off their debut eOne album Black Holes. The band only signed with eOne in August this year and they instantly skyrocketed up the charts when the album was released. At the moment the band is currently charting better than Slash, Arkells and Greta Van Fleet. Watch for a feature interview with The Blue Stones in the January issue of 519.
The Tea Party recently released a new song called Black River, which Canadian radio picked up on as soon as it was released. The track sits at #15 beating out Pop Evil and Imagine Dragons. It’s perfect timing for a radio hit as the band announced a cross-Canada tour that will begin in March taking them from Nova Scotia to BC, with three stops in the US to end the tour.
The Tea Party returns to Windsor on April 18 with another Windsor band in tow – Autumn Kings. The Kings will be performing the first of three appearances at Kid Rock’s Made In Detroit club inside Little Caesars Arena this week. Dates include Dec. 14, Jan. 4 and Feb. 1. The band’s latest track Aliens! Is a great track. They released a lyric video for the song back in July. Tickets for The Tea Party/Autumn Kings Caesars show go on sale Dec. 18.
