Toronto, ON (February 24, 2015) – Hot off the heels of his brand new album announcement, “We Are The Reckoning” (3/31), JUNO nominated singer-songwriter Peter Katz has revealed a slew of national and international tour dates to launch this spring. Katz, who recently signed a label deal with Maple Music Recordings/Fontana North, will take his full band show to Europe for the month of April before embarking on a national headline Canadian tour that includes stops in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.
Three years in the making “We Are The Reckoning” is a striking 11-song collection that showcases an artistic evolution for Katz and boasts an impressive guest list of collaborators including rising Scottish star Rachel Sermanni, legendary lap steel player Ben Peeler (Fleet Foxes, Jimmy Cliff, Wallflowers) and Felicity Williams (Bahamas).
With over 55,000 views in just under two weeks, the video for lead single “Brother” features long-time friend and multi-talented Canadian artist Royal Wood. Currently sitting at #5 on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20 and growing rapidly in popularity, the song is a heartfelt, uplifting tribute to relationships built and bonds forged.

“We Are The Reckoning” follows 2012’s “Still Mind Still” which paved the way for three successful national and international tours. Most notably, the new album, documents the evolution of Katz’s artistic vision and the realization that he needed to make a change and progress creatively in order to be heard with fresh ears, for the ‘first time’ – again.
