One of the most successful bands on the Canadian music scene in the latter half of the 1990s, Big Wreck, return with their highly anticipated third full-length album „Albatross’. Produced by Big Wreck‟s singer-guitarist Ian Thornley, alongside executive producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush) and Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Cancer Bats), „Albatross’ will be released on March 6, 2022 through Anthem/Warner Music in Canada. The excitement surrounding the band‟s revival and new album has catapulted the lead single and title track to become the highest charting Canadian single at “All Rock”, Modern Rock and Alternative Radio Stations in the country.

Propelled to international success with their 2x Platinum award winning album „In Loving Memory Of…‟ which includes the smash radio hits “The Oaf”, “Blown Wide Open” and “That Song”, the first question after a long absence may be, „Why did you go away?‟. The simple answer on why Big Wreck is back is owed to a rekindling of the friendship of Ian Thornley and guitarist Brian Doherty, who didn‟t speak for years. “I just missed him,” says Ian, frankly. “I called him just to hang out, but of course knew the chemistry would be there.”

Doherty echoes the sentiment: “We got together and started doing the same things as when we first met, on a personal and musical level. It seemed to make complete sense.”

With „Albatross,‟ Big Wreck is back to doing things the way they did in the very beginning; writing and recording without any outside influence, and regardless of the tastes of the day. The result is 11 new well-crafted tracks filled with intriguing timbres and powerful vocal performances that won‟t disappoint the fans they earned in the early years, and is sure to inspire a new legion of Big Wreck fans.
