In celebration of the release of their eagerly awaited sixth studio album, entitled ainthood, on Sire/Vapor Records, Tegan and Sara appear with special guests Steel Train.
The follow-up to 2007`s The Con, Sainthood addresses secular themes of devotion, delusion, and exemplary behavior in the pursuit of love and relationships. The songs, Tegan and Sara say, were "inspired by emotional longing and the quiet actions we hope may be noticed by the objects of our affection. Sainthood is about obsession with romantic ideals. In the service of relationships we practice being perfect. We practice our sainthood in the hope that we will be rewarded with adoration. As we are driven to become anything for someone else, we sometimes become martyrs for our cause. "
