Toronto-based progressive rock band The Slyde will be in Barrie next month as part of their 10 Years and Counting Tour.

The band will perform Oct. 3 at the Foxx Lounge on Dunlop Street East, marking a decade together, over which time they released two albums and four EPs.

The tour will also be one of the band's first Canadian dates since returning from their performance in Germany at the world's largest outdoor metal festival, Wacken Open Air, which had an attendance of more than 80,000 fans. 

The band played the festival after winning the Wacken Metal Battle Canada competition and being selected out of more than 100 bands from across the country to perform on the festival. 

The Slyde has also played nearly 200 shows on the eastern Canadian circuit, sharing the stage with such bands as Protest the Hero, Down With Webster, Angra, Pain of Salvation, F*ck The Facts, Dana Fuchs, and Timber Timbre, among others.

They have also made past appearances at Ottawa Bluesfest, Canadian Music Week, IndieWeek, and Cornwall Lift-Off.
