Alan Doyle Announces New EP, Rough Side Out, Available February 14

Alan Doyle – one of Canada’s most treasured musicians – has announced the release of a brand new EP, Rough Side Out, coming February 14.

The album features the single “We Don’t Wanna Go Home” with country star Dean Brody, as well as an appearance by 3-time CCMA Female Artist of the Year winner Jess Moskaluke on the track “What the Whiskey Won’t Do.”

A few days after the EP release, Doyle will kick off a 34-date Canadian tour beginning February 19 in Moose Jaw. A full list of dates can be found below. He will be touring with his powerhouse 6-piece band and special guest Kelly Prescott.

Every ticket purchased comes with a physical copy of the EP and one dollar from each ticket sold for this show will go to support the A Dollar A Day Foundation. Every dollar collected goes directly into the hands of proven Mental Health and Addictions programs across the country, to help with such issues as the opioid crisis in Vancouver and homelessness in St. John’s.

Late last year, Doyle released the music video for “We Don’t Wanna Go Home,” which includes appearances from Brody, The Reklaws and more.

Doyle – the songwriter, producer, actor and author – is a 12-time JUNO Award nominee for his solo material and work with his iconic band Great Big Sea. In 2018, he was awarded the Order of Canada for his contributions to the musical traditions of Newfoundland and for his commitment to numerous charitable initiatives.
