During the 1990s the Matthew Good Band was probably Canada's most successful alternative rock band. They had a string of big hits such as "Apparitions", "Hello Time Bomb", "Strange Days", "Weapons", and "Load Me Up". Around the turn of the 21st century the band disbanded (officially in 2002) and Matt Good went off to record solo albums. Back together with a whole new band, Matt Good will be touring Canada this spring/summer.
While he is a little older, Matt Good, now also a political and human rights activist, has always been recognized as a fiery frontman putting plenty of energy into his live shows. The lyrics to the songs are edgy and the music is fast-paced.
While this is not a reincarnation of the previous Matthew Good Band, these are just hired musicians on the tour with him, Good has said that this was a way for him to experiment with electric instruments again.
