So, for those unfamiliar, Big Wreck is Ian Thornley (of the band Thornley)'s original band. They were big here in Canada and I gather had some success elsewhere as well. They re-united last year I think it was, and have a new album coming out, here's the first single:

And some older Big Wreck for the unfamiliar:

I've always been a big fan of Ian Thornley's playing and tone, and it's great to see him back with that rhythm section. It's been a good year or two for Canadian rock bands re-uniting, with Big Wreck, Big Sugar and The Tea Party all coming back with tours and upcoming albums.
I love Big Wreck! I saw them open for Dream Theater during their Falling Into Infinity tour and they were awesome! Ian is one of the most amazing slide players I have ever seen!
