2005 saw The Ladies and Gentlemen tour with the likes of Sloan and Matthew Good, as well as Sylvie and Wintersleep — playing sold-out venues all across Canada.
In 2006, the Ladies and Gentlemen have signed to Astralwerks in the USA (staying with Boompa Records for Canada), and changed their name to Small Sins — the same name as their critically acclaimed debut album.
Right now Small Sins are on their last Canadian tour before heading out to conquer the USA and UK, starting Thursday night in Vancouver at The Lamplighter.
