Grant Walters Grant Walters Band Interview: Our Lady Peace

The Canadian alt-rock veterans visit the InkCarceration Festival on Saturday night in Mansfield in support of their ninth studio album, "Somethingness"

“Why-e-i-e-i-eee…yeeaaaaaaahhh…Superman’s dead!” Our monolithic concrete bunker of a residence hall at Simon Fraser University had surprisingly thin walls, which meant that my next door neighbor’s new obsession with Toronto alt-rockers Our Lady Peace also became an integral part of my life – usually when I didn’t want them to be. “Superman’s Dead,” the lead single […]
