WATCH: Sam Roberts Band Explore the Future with New Video

I must say, we were pretty excited to see a submission from Sam Roberts Band come into our inbox. For one thing, Roberts is #59 on Billboard’s Top 150 Overall Selling Canadian Artists. The band has won six Juno Awards, five Much Music Awards.
