Saskatoon’s W3APONS kicked off 2020 with a two-month, cross-country tour opening for Theory of a Deadman. As the band worked their way from west to east, W3APONS sold three times the merch they had expected and watched their single “She Was The One” climb to #23 on the Canadian Active Rock Charts.
The trio - Tallus Scott, Myk Ulan-Hohol, and Jordan Welbourne – knew their sound would be a great match for Theory of a Deadman’s fan base and they’re excited to keep building on the successful road trip.
“W3APONS touring with Theory of a Deadman was a perfect musical combination - which was completely evident by the audience's receptions of the band across the country. The band now has national attention from every major centre in the country, after performing to a total estimate of over 25,000 people - which will set the band up perfectly for their upcoming releases and future tour dates.” - W3APONS (Scott, Ulan-Hohol, Welbourne)
After securing a Creative Saskatchewan Tour Support Grant, the tour began in Vancouver in January and travelled east, for a total of twenty-one performances. W3APONS increased their fan base, connected with their existing fans, sold merchandise, and promoted their new single nationally.
