A taste down memory lane. April Wine may have seemed like a shot-in-the-dark band, but they've seemed to age gracefully and are actually out on a quite substantial tour.
With 16 studio albums to their credit, it was their 1981 release "The Nature of the Beast" that sent them not only multi-Platinum success in their Canadian homeland, but their first to reach Platinum status internationally as well.
Riding on their hit single "Just Between You and Me," they filled arenas across the country in a series of touring stints in the early 80s, and after 30+ years in the business, April Wine is out on the road again. Hey, it's summer. Go out for a sip.
