Montreal's Men Without Hats will soon be taking their timeless performance back on the road in support of their new album Love In The Age of War (out now on Cobraside Records).
During 2011's "Dance If You Want" tour, Men Without Hats opened every show with their single "This War." They're sharing the single in honor of their upcoming tour dates (link below). The track is an uplifting blend of the band's distinguished synthpop sound, accentuated by Ivan's distinctive baritone croon.
Love In The Age of War marked the band's their first album release in albums 10 years and features 10 original songs written by Ivan Doroschuk. Produced by Dave "Rave" Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson), Love In The Age of War features charismatic front man Ivan (voice and electronics), his brother Colin Doroschuk (vocals), as well as Lou Dawson (vocals and live keyboards), and James Love (guitars).
In 2011, Men Without Hats soared back into the scene with their breakout performance at SXSW, followed by an extensive, well-received North American tour.
Since forming in the late 70's, the band released six studio albums - having songs featured on hit TV series such as Glee, The Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy. Their 1980's hit "The Safety Dance" reached Top 10 in the US, the UK and 25 other countries around the world. Their 1987 hit "Pop Goes The World" reached the top 20 in the US and Canada. In 1983, they picked up a Grammy nomination for Best group.
