Sean Panting Album Release at the Ship 8:30pm December 1st

November 30, 2011

Sean Panting will be celebrating the release of his first album in six years this Thursday, December 1st at the Ship Pub.

There will be an acoustic show starting at 8:30 with an opening set by the one and only Katie Baggs.

At 10:30 the Panting Band (SP: Vocals and Guitar, Don Ellis: Bass and Adam Staple: Drums) will crank up the Rock n Roll.

“Sean Panting is one of the best songwriters, not only in NL, or Canada, but anywhere. It’s been a pleasure watching him grow over the years and Man of the Year is as good as anything he’s ever done – a great distillation of styles and varying sonic attacks. Congratulations Sean on another killer album!” – Mike Campbell The Carlton/Much Music

“For 25 years, Sean Panting has been an original voice in Canadian music whether it’s through his impeccable solo albums or his band collaborations. The wit of Costello, the intensity of Townshend, the straight-ahead rock of Grohl. A musical integrity all his own.” – Russell Bowers host of Daybreak CBC Alberta

“It’s not easy to get older, grow up, and keep the edge you had as a teenager. Sean Panting has made a life in rock and roll, and done it in style.” – Bob Hallett Great Big Sea

“If you don’t like Sean Panting we can’t hang out. There’s more story in two verses of a Panting song than there is in most libraries” – Mark Critch This Hour Has 22 Minutes

Available December 1st at Fred’s Records and online at itunes, Amazon and Bandcamp.com
