Justin Sullivan - on a slow boat to Canada...
On Monday, January 13th, Justin shipped out as a passenger on the Canmar Pride - an Atlantic ice-cutting freighter, bound for Montreal. During the voyage, which lasted approximately eleven days Justin sailed through two hurricanes and arrived safely late on Friday 24th.
Justin spent his time watching the waves, doing interviews via the ship's satellite phone and writing for the new NMA album which will be recorded later this year. On his arrival in Canada, he visited Saulte St. Marie, where his great grandfather, Edward Sullivan, was based during his time as Bishop of Algoma, during the late nineteenth century. He also hoped to find out more about his grandfather, the Canadian novelist, engineer and explorer Alan Sullivan. He completed his trip with a two day dog-sled expedition.
He is now home, working on material for the new Army album and preparing for the upcoming tour.
