New Sloan Tour Dates

For those annoyed that Sloan‘s last dip into the Lower 48 didn’t included much beyond NY, you’ll be happy to hear that Jay, Chris, Patrick and Andrew are returning for a faily extensive tour of the US, kicking off next week in Buffalo, and then onto SXSW for a bunch of shows and then up and down both coasts. Sorry Middle-America, you’re still out of luck.

    Hello Music lover,
    My name is Ed and I would like to invite you to participate in my new project. It’s called JUKEBOX JUNKIES, link . I created this blog so that it would be a place where everyone could share their music world wide. Wondering how this would benefit you? Frankly, I believe you are seeking more traffic to your site and by participating; you would be able to introduce your music and promote your site to the other music lovers. Please join us, because the more the merrier. Kindly read the instructions and further explanation below. Hope to get an email from you. My email is .
    What is Jukebox Junkies?
    This is our place to share and introduce our music to the world. Basically, this site is open to everyone and anyone, especially to ALL music related sites. All it takes is your corporation. In a way, this place will benefit your site when people come here to listen to your music selections, moreover, you would be able to introduce and promote your site(s). Gradually people will start visiting your site(s). As for the others who neither have a blog nor a webpage to link-to, you can just create you own selection of songs by uploading it in the box and post it here. Wouldn't you love to be a blog DJ so others would be able to enjoy your music? Moreover, you can meet people and have new friends. There is no specific music category or niche here. You can upload any type of music, regardless its language, but your comments must be in English.
    How it works
    You must open a free account by registering with or you can also directly download your music and subsequently open your account at widget (recommended). All it takes is just 5 simple steps.
    1st = Select your music files (must be MP3), upload up to a maximum of 3 (you can download more later)
    2nd = Create a FREE BOX account (max 1GB / about 20+ MP3 files, depending on your file sizes, for 1 month). Post your email address and password. You manage your own box and MP3 files.
    3rd = Click Upload and wait.
    4th = (when the screen changes) select your preferred colour for your BOX, the size (just leave it at medium) and state the title of your Jukebox. (E.g. Tom’s Compilation or Rocker's Songs or Pop Idols, anything you wish to name your jukebox)
    5th = Copy & paste the HTML/Java code to a notepad. Save it, attach it and email it to me at and subsequently I will load and post it here. You can also paste the code into you own web-page and manage it from there, or you can manage it from here, after I have loaded and posted your HTML/Java code.
    Note: Don’t forget to upload your MP3 songs. You can do it anytime you wish, but please ensure you have least 3 upload songs before you send me your HTML/Java Code. You can open as many jukeboxes as you desire using different email address and it’s ALL FREE. If you need additional space like 5GB, you got to purchase it.
    What you need to provide me
    1st = Register with BOX, load at least three MP3 songs, copy the HTML/Java Code and email it to me. Please send me this information.
    Your name to be presented:
    Your URL / Link:
    Your email address: (if you wish to be contacted)
    Attach the HTML/Java Code (Notepad format) to your email
    Your picture / screen shot of you site (optional)
    Any Posting (in words format) (optional)
    2nd = You can also write something about your interest in music or why you selected those songs. You can also introduce yourself by writing something about yourself or your site. If you wish, you can send your picture or a screen shot of your site and I will post it together with your jukebox. If you want to have a music video (You Tube), it can also be arranged. Basically, you can send me anything you want to present together with your jukebox. Remember, the more materials and information you provide, more people will be interested to view your box.
    3rd = Everyday, I will check my email and update this blog.
    Please don’t send any offensive pictures or any remarks which are unacceptable by the general public cause I won’t post it.
    You can add and remove your selection of songs anytime, but it’s recommended to leave it for about at least a week before doing so. Please don't leave your jukebox empty or I will presume you no longer want to participate and i will remove it. Get a new box if you need to share more songs.
    If you have any difficulty in the process, please send me an email and I will help you out.
    That’s all. Nice and simple isn’t it. The most important is your corporation and commitment to make this blog a successful one. Please provide your utmost support and I would appreciate your commitment. Thank you for reading and participation.
