Listen to new album Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees HERE


23 OCTOBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON) — Today, rising Canadian rocker TALK announces an extensive North American headlining tour in 2024 to support his debut album, Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees, which released last Friday on Capitol Records. Listen to the full album HERE. TALK performed his first of three shows opening for country queen Shania Twain last night in Toronto, where he flexed his powerful rock chops in front of a sold-out crowd.


It all comes on the heels of the release of Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees. Featuring hit singles “Run Away to Mars” and “A Little Bit Happy,” the hard-hitting collection shoots for the stars—and stadiums—with inspirations from Meatloaf, Broadway, and ‘80s and ‘90s rock. 


“The concept for ‘Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees’ was dreamed up by my executive producer Justin Tranter and I,” TALK explains. “I think what we created was almost exactly what was originally envisioned—an album that was made with love and heart, that I hope will put a smile on people’s faces or be a warm hug to those who need one.”


While the album navigates a flood of emotions—both good and bad—it ultimately sees hope prevail. “Thematically the album is about love and friendship being able to survive anything. It’s never too late to lift someone up,” TALK adds. Filled with big dramatics and blistering guitar solos, the 10-track set never lets up, from upbeat opener “Fall For You” to the acoustic slow-burner “A Little Bit Happy” to the fiery call-to-arms “Wastleland.” By album closer “Set On Me,” TALK is ready to soar—“I won’t let the sun set on me,” he declares in his booming howl—and it’s hard not to be pulled into his rays. 


Next year’s headlining tour will bring Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees to life. TALK will kick it off on February 9 in Detroit before hitting most major markets around the U.S., including Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York with Zinadelphia as support. He will then head back north for a tour around Canada, starting in Quebec City on April 18 and ending in Vancouver on May 6. The artist presale launches at 10am on October 24 with general ticket sales opening at 10am on October 26. You can purchase tickets HERE. See the full tour schedule and presale timeline below.


Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees comes after a whirlwind few years for TALK, born Nicholas Durocher. After “Run Away to Mars” went viral in 2022, the song soared to #1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative charts earlier this year. While he continues to be a huge sensation on TikTok, he’s proving to be quite the onstage powerhouse, too—just ask Shania Twain! His inaugural headlining tour will certainly be a must-see.
