Barenaked Ladies The Barenaked Ladies are mad as hell—or at least, being polite Canadian gentlemen, they’re rather peeved. “Give it up for anger—it makes us strong!” sings Ed Robertson on the band’s new album, All in Good Time. Having survived a time in their history they describe as “devastating,” Canada’s most playful band is ready to let some darker feelings show.

In the summer of 2008, 20 years after Robertson and co-frontman Steven Page, pals since grade school, founded the band in Scarborough, Ont., their career took what Robertson describes as “a major left turn.” In the midst of promoting their children’s album Snacktime!, Page was arrested for cocaine possession. Plans for promoting the CD were curtailed, and by February 2009, he had left the band.
