Big Sugar has no intention of getting out of the music business anytime soon.
After a six-year hiatus ended last year, the rock band went full speed ahead in the recording studio and emerged with Revolution Per Minute. After releasing the album in June, Big Sugar is currently on a crossCanada tour in support of the disc.
Although Big Sugar has produced six albums since 1988, the band is hopeful that fans will be particularly pleased with their newest album. Gordie Johnson, the band's lead guitarist, stated in a recent telephone interview that the new album provides a vigour that will charge their live performances more so than in the past. Revolution Per Minute, which features singles such as Little Bit A All Right, If I Were Heaven and True Believers, picks up on the storyline from the band's last recording in 2003.
