Their new record, The Things We Left Behind will be released in the U.S. on January 26, 2010.

Early reviews from the Canadian press have been glowing:

“The Things We Left Behind is a stunning record.”
****
Vancouver Sun – November 2009

“…all they left behind were the limitations.”
****
Toronto Sun – November 2009

“Audacious…This is a collection that honours the past without being chained to it.”
****
Montreal Gazette – November 2009

“Keelor and Cuddy prove they remain unequalled at what they do…. There are dozens of young bands trying to put their mark on a distinctly new Canadian alt-country sound. Unfortunately, they need look no further than this album to find it.”
****
Halifax Metro News – November 2009

“One wild and wonderful listen.”
****
Edmonton Journal – November 2009

“The reason it works is because it mixes the band’s hard-earned command of craft with the restlessness it has displayed since being alt-country darlings in the late 1980s and1990s.”
****
Calgary Herald – November 2009

“It’s classic Blue Rodeo.”
****
Ottawa Citizen – November 2009

This is the band’s 12th studio record and the most ambitious to date. In a time where bands are posting “tweet songs,” Blue Rodeo is releasing an old-fashion 16-song double record, which will be available on CD and vinyl.
