Cody Canada—former front man for Cross Canadian Ragweed—finds rock and roll renewal with The Departed and their latest studio release, ‘HippieLovePunk’.

The latest incarnation of the The Departed isn’t a reinvention of the group’s sound, or a reimagining of Canada’s musical perspective—it’s a reunion. As with any reunion, the passing years have provided the involved parties with new and unique perspectives, breathing vibrant excitement into their streamlined new environment. Cody Canada, Jeremy Plato, Chris Doege, and Steve Littleton are reopening the doors to a sonic garage where sounds and stories some thought were gone for good are now being unleashed onto an eager public after a few years of fruitful—even risky—artistic diversion.

With the chill of 2014’s winter thawing into the haziness of the spring and The Departed now having played as a powerful four-piece for several months, Canada’s appreciation for the truly remarkable, intensely personal body of work he created as he fronted Ragweed is intact, and indeed, fresh with the passing of time and the healing of emotional wounds. Unsurprisingly, fans are exuberantly responding to the inclusion of classics such as “Alabama,” “Dimebag,” and “17” into set-lists for The Departed shows. The refitted outfit is channeling the power chords and raw-bone ballads, which vaulted Canada into the status as Red Dirt’s biggest name for so long.
